The Time for Environmental Action is NOW!

Ready to make a difference on environmental issues? 
Start here with EFM Forum 2021.  

Scientists are now realizing the climate crisis and biodiversity crisis are interwoven and that any effective solutions must address both in order to succeed. 

Join our Forum 2021 series of classes, which we offer in lieu of our traditional Master Class, to hear from experts who will describe the state of biodiversity in marshes, redwood forests, and other habitats across California. In addition to informative webinars that help build your understanding of biodiversity, we also offer a four-class advocacy training, with a new, relevant introduction to advocacy through persuasive video to help you channel that understanding into action.

Forum 2020 is a virtual series of conversations with experts in their fields, including professional presentations focused on building equitable community resilience to the impacts of climate disruption.
EFM does more than educate you about the environment. Our goal is to develop an informed and engaged citizenry and train them to advocate for policies that enhance the natural and built environments (#educate4action).

Forum 2021 Program Schedule       

Classes begin on 9/9. The series includes two in person field trips. To get the most out of our program, we encourage you to sign up for the entire series. Some of our webinars will be available individually.
