Earth Month 2022 includes virtual lunch and learns, raffle prizes, and is open to all. This April, get empowered. Act on climate. Hosted by Multnomah County's Office of Sustainability.

Earth Month 2022

We enter this April’s Earth Month knowing more than ever before about climate change and its life-altering impacts to our families, neighbors, and all living beings in every corner of the planet. Despite so much information being within our reach, it can still be daunting to sort through it all, and know what we can do to help.

This April, attend the Office of Sustainability’s virtual lunch and learn events that are designed to educate and provide you with an opportunity to act on climate. You’ll leave each event being prepared to turn often overwhelming information into empowering action. And, each event will have a raffle for Chinook Books, so you can support local businesses, if you are able.

All events are open to staff and the public.
