Join us as we march the streets of downtown Dallas to advocate for non-human animals.

When we gather as a whole and unite to help create a spark in many by taking part in this helps the animal rights movement along even further. Let’s help amplify the voices of animals.
As Albert Einstein said "The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing."

Austin, Houston, San Antonio, Corpus Christi will also be taking part in this Texas March for animals.

Come celebrate National Moth Week with a special nighttime presentation about the cousins of our butterfly friends. Texas Parks and Wildlife Urban Biologist Sam Kieschnick will lead this event.

These nocturnal insects have amazing patterns and colors, but special lights are needed to fully attract and appreciate them. We’ll be setting up some moth lights and moth sheets to entice the nocturnal bugs to visit for everyone to see. 

Critterman and his live animals are engaging entertainment for children and adults. Meet and learn about animals from around the world that can make you squirm. We teach that these animals look the way they do to survive, not scare anyone.

Free.

Refreshments at 6:30 p.m. Meeting starts at 7 p.m.
