This program was an encore presentation of the September 24, 2021 meeting of the Pikes Peak Environmental Forum. The Forum informs the community in Colorado Springs on issues of environmental import. Our monthly luncheon meeting topics have ranged from how earthquakes can predict weather events to sustainable energy solutions. Each month we learn something we weren’t necessarily aware we needed to know, but in broadening our knowledge, we deepen our understanding of, and our connection to, the world. The Forum is taking a break following its October, 2021 meeting. Learn about future plans or luncheons at our Facebook page, or contact us to be put on the email list for updates as we evaluate our future.
