Robert Kent is the North Texas Area Director for the Trust for Public Land (TPL), a national nonprofit that creates parks and protects land for people, ensuring healthy, livable communities for generations to come. In November 2014, TPL opened its North Texas Area Office with Kent at the helm. He will present on the Lake Worth Greenprint, a recent TPL study of the Lake Worth watershed, as well as other TPL projects happening in the North Texas area.

The speaker is followed by refreshments and announcements. All are welcome!

Botswana has been called Africa's "Living Eden," and the Sierra Club International Outing that Carol Roark and Lon Burnam, both Fort Worth Sierra Club members, took there certainly confirmed the wonders that can be seen there. From the majesty of a herd of elephants walking through the brush, to a cheetah hunting, to the vibrant turquoise, purple and black of a lilac breasted roller, the photos and stories about this incredible land should not be missed.

The speaker is followed by refreshments and announcements. All are welcome!

Rita Beving, Outreach Coordinator for Clean Water Fund and Dallas Sierra Club member, will touch on DFW water planning and where our region is in the process for water planning, and our efforts underway to work with HOAs and neighborhood associations on water conservation. Rita will also give water-saving tips for all of us who want to help conserve water and save money. The speaker is followed by refreshments and announcements. All are welcome!

From Downwinders at Risk:

Rick Perry is leaving DFW breathers with a final farewell gift - another lousy anti-smog plan. We need you to speak out for a better one on January 15th.

After decades of being out of compliance with the Clean Air Act, this is your only chance to tell the state of Texas that DFW needs a better approach to reducing smog in DFW than the "do nothing" plan it's sending to the EPA.

The state's plan doesn't require new pollution controls on ANY major sources of DFW air pollution. 

No new controls for the Midlothian cement plants. Even though one of the plants is installing advanced smog controls on its own, TCEQ isn't requiring them on all three cement plants.

No new controls for the oil and gas industry. Even though we know this pollution is the reason clean air progress has stalled in DFW over the past five years. 

No new controls for East Texas coal plants. Even though we know they impact DFW air quality.
