Join us for our next Envirorun Lincoln event!

We’re partnering with Hub Cafe to bring you this month’s Speaker Series which will focus on Nebraska Transportation. This edition of the series features local leaders in an exciting panel discussion on the work they’re doing within local transportation, whether it’s electric, public and more. Listen to them talk about how they got started, the work they’re doing, and how to get involved in the industry.

Our Speaker Series is designed to provide an opportunity to connect with the environmental community, with light refreshments, a casual atmosphere and are always free! You can join us at 6 PM just for the run, 7 PM just for the panel, or both! For this event, we’ll be holding it at the Jayne Snyder Trails Center.
