    The Arizona Green Chamber of Commerce is on summer break - we will resume Green Drinks and Lunch and Learn events in September.

    Have a safe and healthy summer!


    • 13 Sep 2017
    • 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM
    • 10409 S Central Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85042

    Join us for the September 13 Lunch and Learn! 

    Lisa Herrmann, MBA, MEd, the Education Manager for South Mountain Environmental Education Center and the Arizona Center for Nature Conservation will share the how the center is leading the way in engaging the surrounding community members in understanding how to live within and care for the Sonoran Desert.  The center programs help develop critical thinking and problem solving skills, while advancing learning that embraces sustainable innovations. 


    Lisa has worked in the field of environmental education as a classroom teacher, non-formal science educator, developer of science programming and curriculum, and as an environmental education advocate.


    The South Mountain Environmental Education Center (SMEEC) is a 10,000 sq ft facility at the heart of the main entrance to South Mountain Park/Preserve that serves as a hub for guests exploring the 17,000 acres of Sonoran Desert habitat and recreational areas. Arizona Center for Nature Conservation (ACNC) has operated the facility in partnership with the City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department since early 2016 after the building had been closed for several years due to budget constraints. Through the facilities at SMEEC, ACNC provides environmental education to park visitors and the diverse communities of South Phoenix. ACNC programs engage community members in understanding how to live within and care for the Sonoran Desert while developing critical thinking and problem solving skills, and learning to embrace sustainable innovations. As great work continues to ensure a thriving economy and healthy communities in South Phoenix, environmental education programs prepare youth and adults to contribute by supporting sustainable businesses as consumers and through the workforce, and making choices that support overall sustainability. ACNC is building programs and partnerships to serve the full diversity of South Phoenix.

    We will also have an update on the light rail extension along Central and the economic development South of Downtown.
