The purpose of the EPN is to network with organizations that promote health and natural values in the community and to educate the South Bay community about the importance of conservation at the local, national and global level.

The goals of the EPN include joining with local organizations in sponsoring environmental educational events, working for policies that will decrease pollution, and promoting environmental protection at the local, state, and national levels.

EPN has reached out to over 800 South Bay residents and environmental corporations since its first event Saving Spaceship Earth I on April 20, 2002 in addition to networking with South Bay elected officials through local meetings and featuring them as speakers at the events.
