The local Texas Campaign for the Environment office is hosting follow up meetings about the gas drilling issue in Dallas. TCE is also launching a statewide campaign to urge Wal-mart to start a take back recycling program for old and obsolete electronics and this will be a forum to discuss this program. Electronic waste is toxic waste (it contains lead, mercury and many hazardous chemicals) that doesn’t belong in D/FW landfills – which are often situated close to area waterways. TCE is thus urging Walmart to match the recycling program Best Buy is offering in their retail stores nationwide, and we launched a “social media action”.

*Venus Transit Day: Since Venus orbits between the Earth and the Sun, we have the opportunity to see it transit (pass in front of the Sun) every so often.
On June 5th, we will have that opportunity. Join Nature Center staff and Fort Worth Astronomical Society members in celebrating this event. We will have activities for kids and of course, scopes set up to see Venus move across the sky with the Sun as our backdrop.
FREE (with paid admission)

This event is free and open to the public.
Oftentimes we get excited about solar, wind and geothermal installations as a possible solution to our energy consumption, but those types of energy solutions can be expensive. Start with baby steps. This class will teach students simple auditing techniques for detecting drafty areas in the home as well as inexpensive follow-up solutions to fixing those leaks.
Tuesday, June 5
6 to 7:30 p.m.
