Throughout the years, PCL and the PCL Foundation has hosted a variety of events for members, affiliates and grassroots organizations. See our upcoming events below. Join us and become part of the important environmental work that PCL, along with our partners, does for all of California.


Launched in 1965, when the environmental movement was just starting to focus on the Capitol, PCL and PCL Foundation have a rich history that has seen these organizations at the forefront of many of California’s leading environmental laws and policies, such as the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), Coastal Act, and providing billions of dollars from bond initiatives for parks, open space and transit. Join us and celebrate the past 50 years of successes!

50 Years - PCL Gala Celebration

Join Us at the Gala!


Every year PCL hosts Symposia to bring together legislators, environmental non-profits, local grassroots groups, businesses, policy-makers and attorneys. Our cutting-edge policy sessions, “How To” workshops and inspirational keynote speakers engage, empower and enlighten our participants.

CEQA Workshops

Since 1998, PCL has led dozens of CEQA workshops throughout California focusing on the consequences of California’s growth on local communities. We encourage you to attend, host or sponsor a CEQA workshop in your area. Learn how to use the California Environmental Quality Act to protect your community from environmental degradation. See more on our CEQA Workshops.


PCL hosts a series of small parties throughout California to fund-raise, friend-raise, and build a broad base of supporters that can be mobilized. The Eco-Salons focus on PCL’s efforts to develop a transformative “greenprint” for what California should look like in 2050 — and how to get there.
