Explorer Series

The Explorer Series, curated by the St. Louis Civic Pride Foundation, showcases and amplifies many of the great aspects of our community and presents them in an entertaining and engaging fashion. This series of networking and educational events takes place six times a year, providing our hosts with an opportunity to brief attendees on their organizations while encouraging participants to help spread the word!
