Energize East Hampton, a town initiative to connect residents and businesses with opportunities and programs that can reduce energy use and its costs, will host a series of webinars about sustainable transportation starting on Wednesday and continuing in May and June. 

Automobiles account for almost one-third of greenhouse gas emissions, and the series aims to educate residents as to greener options for traveling to, from, and around East Hampton. 

The series starts on Wednesday at 4 p.m. with a presentation on sustainable ways to get around town beyond the car. Participants will play a virtual game of Bingo, with winners receiving a $50 gift card to an East Hampton restaurant of choice. 

The series continues on May 18, also at 4 p.m., when Drive Electric Long Island, a coalition of electric vehicle stakeholders, presents a webinar on the basics of electric vehicles including an opportunity to hear from and ask questions of E.V. owners.

East Hampton’s more than 200 miles of trails, bike rides to the beach, shopping, dining, and stroll routes, and future hiking and cycling plans will be explored on June 16, also at 4 p.m. 

Registration for all webinars is at energizeeh.org.
