One of the best ways to get involved in the climate movement is to learn more about the opportunities available in your community. We encourage you to attend a Growing Climate Solutions event, or one hosted by our network of community partners, to help Southwest Florida get on a “path to positive” future.
Please contact our Regional Director, Dr. Ana Puszkin-Chevlin, to submit an event for our calendar.
