What is a Monmouth County Environmental Council Roundtable?
Since 1992, the Monmouth County Environmental Council has hosted Roundtable events designed to help the public understand a certain environmental issue or topic. At these educational forums, guests hear presentations from a handful of expert speakers and may pose questions in a Q&A session. Past roundtables have covered topics ranging from what is a watershed to hydroponic growing, supporting pollinators and how to protect your family from ticks and mosquitoes.
Save the date: April 29, 2020 will be the next Monmouth County Environmental Council Roundtable!
