Connect with people who share your passion: ‘Thousands of professionals in Ohio and beyond’

A reminder that, while you don’t have to be a member of the Environmental Professionals Network to attend its monthly programs, there are lots of good reasons to join anyway. (It’s free, too, so there’s that.) If you work in an environmental field, if you’re studying in an environmental field and hope to work in it eventually, maybe even soon, the network will link you to “thousands of professionals in Ohio and beyond,” its website says. “Professionals are thus connected in a ‘community’ of people who share their passion for our world and its environment, natural resources, people, and communities — local to global.” Visit the website here.
