Education for Action: Our legacy of environmental education, advocacy training and leadership

Environmental Forum of Marin offers two educational training programs. 

The Master Class is an intensive, comprehensive training program that immerses the student in topics that are critical to our environment and its protection. It also teaches advocacy skills, preparing the student to speak confidently in a public forum, and supports the completion of an individual or team stewardship project.

The Lecture Series offers a detailed look at current environmental topics, and encourages the participant to understand the underlying issues and develop appropriate actions.

This multi-week series of classes, field trips and lectures, is the Environmental Forum’s flagship educational program. The Master Class curriculum delves into the natural world, the impacts of human activity and development pressures on land and resources, and ways in which students can step up to positions of stewardship, advocacy, and leadership. This is an opportunity to discuss current issues with experts in their fields, and hear about potential solutions to climate change, and venues for effective advocacy for preservation of our unique environmental ecosystems.
