- Planets Earth | 24/7 Access via Phipps website
A new exhibit in the Center for Sustainable Landscapes, "Planets Earth" takes you inside the problem of resource use as a central catalyst for climate change and other environmental issues, identifies the ways of thinking that drive conventional decision making today, and forges a courageous new path toward changing the way we interact with the world — from large-scale infrastructural change to actions guests can take in their own lives.
- Biophilia Pittsburgh | First Thursday of every month | Advance registration required
Biophilia: Pittsburgh meets monthly at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens where, over delicious small-plates and light refreshments, a discipline or behavior is identified — often by an expert guest speaker — and discussed among the participants in the interest of sharing ideas and identifying opportunities.
- Virtual Environmental Film Series | Third Friday of every month | Advance registration required
Virtual Environmental Film Series invites folks to learn watch educational documentaries presented by Phipps via Zoom, with a follow up of a Q&A to discuss the movie’s content, meaning and significance.
