City of Fort Worth: Trees for North Texas - Online

Nov 11 2021 - 6:00pm
Online TX

Although trees can and are established in Texas in the spring, fall is most often a better time to establish trees. Cooler temperatures create more favorable conditions for a successful transition into the tree's permanent home. Which is why in 2013, Texas established Texas State Arbor Day, which falls on the first Friday of November.

Using less water is not only good for the environment; it is also great for saving money on your water bill. This seminar series, taught by experts from Rooted In, covers a wide variety of landscape and gardening topics each year. Fort Worth Water Conservation staff attend each seminar in case you have questions about Fort Worth outdoor watering requirements and conservation programs.

Seminar begins at 6 p.m. Registration is not required. Just join using this link: https://fortworthtexas.webex.com/fortworthtexas/onstage/g.php?MTID=e77fd...

Women in the Environment is pleased to bring together companies, cities, and environmental advocates who can shape positive actions across the board.

All of us should be aware of what our region is up against. To landfill, recycle, reuse, transition to other package materials, continue to explore green energy — these are just a few of the questions for which we must develop answers.

Tickets: $50
