EPA Community Air Monitoring Training Webinar – this Thursday July 9, 9-12:30 Eastern

Several Moving Forward Network members are going to attend this great Environmental Protection Agency workshop at EPA’s Research Triangle Park in Durham, N.C.

But, you don’t have to be there to benefit from the experts EPA has lined up, including EPA scientist Ron Williams.  As of right now, seats are still available to attend via webinar.

We’ve written about Ron’s work several times, most recently about his presentation on the EPA Citizen Science Air Monitor (CSAM) that was installed for the MFN member Ironbound Community Corporation in Newark NJ.

 If you’re interested in empowering your community to conduct citizen science and protect itself from air pollution, this is a great place to start!
