The Environmental Literacy Center (ELC) space has been transitioned to other uses. However, there are still other spaces within the Green Square complex that may be able accommodate environmental education workshops and related events that are in partnership with a state agency. The Lunchtime Discovery Series will also continue in a virtual format, or in some cases a hybrid format from the Daily Planet Theater. 

Lunchtime Discovery Series

The Office of Environmental Education and Public Affairs hosts a guest lecture series called the Lunchtime Discovery Series. Professionals from a wide range of environmental backgrounds come and give presentations about their work and offer an opportunity for attendees to learn about a variety of subjects during the lunch hour. Topics range from spider diversity in North Carolina to Geographic Information Systems (GIS), to how to incorporate music in environmental education programming. Several of these presentations are archived on our site. 

 Upcoming lectures can also be found on our Videos and Livestreams page, and you can sign up for weekly email reminders there as well.
