Clean Eco Meetups
Meet with conservation-minded Sierrans to learn about water, air and ecology issues in north Texas and beyond. Connect with leaders in Sierra Club and our allies in efforts to protect our quality of life. Meetings are held on Thursdays (usually monthly) at 6:30pm, at Picasso's on Inwood north of Forest. Check "What's Going On" or the calendar for the next date.
Think There's Nothing You Can Do to Help Preserve the Earth?
Keep Drugs Out of Your Water Supply
Pharmaceuticals are chemicals that have been intentionally designed to bypass biological defenses in order to affect our organs. This makes them quite difficult to remove from water.
Conservation starts at home! Think globally, act locally comes down to your own garbage can. The majority of Americans recycle, so join us. Click here for information about recycling in Dallas, Fort Worth, and surrounding cities. If you have questions about recycling or recycling campaigns, contact Coralie Miller at 972 699 1687.
You can get FREE mulch delivered to your house from tree service companies, and-or you can pick up FREE mulch by yourself at various companies and city recycling centers. Click here for information about free mulch. If you have questions, contact Kirk or Coralie Miller at 972 699 1687.
Need a speaker for your group? Sierra Club volunteers are available to come talk about recycling, global warming, and other environmental issues. Contact Ann Drumm.
Do you enjoy sharing your knowledge with others? Do you have a specific area of knowledge that you would like to share? We frequently get requests for speakers and this can be a very effective way to communicate a green message to a larger audience. It's also a great opportunity to grow your own knowledge on a specific subject. If you have a presentation that you could deliver or you would be interested in delivering an existing presentation, please contact Robin Sowton. A few examples of presentations delivered this year: Improving Home Energy Efficiency, Tapping North Texas Water, The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, and Greening Your Home.
Do you know someone who would be an excellent speaker for our General Meetings? If you know someone who can speak about green building, alternative energy, organic gardening, a local conservation issue, or any other related topic... please contact Kirk Miller.
Global Population and Environment
Sierra Club's Global Population and Environment Program aims to protect the global environment and preserve natural resources for future generations by advancing global reproductive health and sustainable development initiatives.
Population volunteer opportunities: Can you write articles, or letters to the editors? Can you write or email your members of Congress? Can you speak to groups about the relationship between population and environment? Would you be willing to table?
