There is no end to an education in environmental issues and community resilience.

Here are some opportunities for learning with TF&F.

Quarterly Gatherings

These monthly meetings, held the last Tuesday of each month except December, have a time of announcements for upcoming events and other appropriate and timely ideas, and then a presentation by a local expert on a subject of vital interest to our community, our resilience, or our climate.

Our January 2019 presentation, Earth’s Bipolar Disorder, is available on YouTube for you to watch at any time. This 74 minute recording captures all of the excellent presentation by Dr. Robert Bindschadler. Click on the image below:
