Periodically, Carbon Neutral Kent Woodlands will host an event covering a critical climate-related topic that will leave you optimistic, empowered, and connected to our community! Our first soiree is March 13th from 6:30-7:30 PM with special guest Ellie Cohen, CEO of The Climate Center. As Californians, we can lead the nation in removing gas consumption from our daily lives.
