“I believe that you are all here in this room today because you have a similar (nature) experience whether it’s from your childhood or one from a more recent time that made you feel truly connected to the natural world around you.”

Lots of ways to liven up your week and even help some great causes at the same time. Bowling, birding, geocaching, a musical and a community garden bash - all happening this week in DFW!

More than 30 environmental enthusiasts turned out for the Green Source DFW Summer Mixer on July 18 at The People’s Last Stand in Dallas.

This week, Green Source DFW kicks off the fun with a get-together on Thursday for the green set. On Saturday, you can visit a real butterfly farm or sink your teeth into a course on edible wild plants at the Bob Jones Nature Center. You can also help some local big cats by picking up some treats at a fundraising bake sale.

Last Sunday, about 30 supporters were prepared to block the trucks spraying for mosquitos at Eden's Organic Garden Center and CSA Farm in Balch Springs. But instead of a demonstration, there was a celebration.
