Environmental Forum of Marin

Date/Time

Sep 8, 2018 to Dec 11, 2018
09:00 AM until 03:00 PM

This event occurs every 8 week(s) on Tuesday and Sunday.

Description

Come join us was we explore the beauty and ecology of Marin County. The Master Class includes field trips and class sessions, 11 total over three months on Tuesdays Saturdays, September through November. 

Students meet experts in their particular fields, offering history, insights, and critical scientific detail about the subject matter of that day. The dedication and caliber of our presenters and their willingness to dialogue with students creates a wonderful learning experience. Students learn: the historical efforts made to protect our open spaces; how our ecological systems have evolved; and to identify meaningful and effective strategies for environmental advocacy.

Field excursions expose Master Class students to leaders in Marin’s agricultural history, such as Albert Strauss (founder of the first organic dairy in the country), Cowgirl Creamery, the owners of Hog Island Oyster Company and the Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT). Classes will visit the Tomales Bay watershed, and learn the importance of our wetlands and uplands, major defenders against rising tides and providers of critical habitat for our plant communities.

Communication and Advocacy Skills are also highlighted, in order to prepare participants to speak publicly with confidence and grace, stepping up to the podium defending his/her ideas, for preservation of our environment.
