Lunch & Learns + Webinars

Join us for a Sustainable Lunch Break or an Afternoon of Learning

In spring 2020, PEA launched a series of quarterly lunch and learns on popular environmental topics. These informative, adult learning opportunities provide expert knowledge on issues that our community wants to learn more about. In response to COVID-19, PEA has shifted from in-person Lunch-and-Learns to interactive, webinar events that community members can participate in from home. All Lunch-and-Learn and Webinar Series events are FREE for PEA members and donate what you can for members of the community.
