Welcome to the Dallas Group of the Sierra Club

General Meeting Program - Tuesday, June 9, 7:00 pm - Refreshments at 6:30

An Environmental CenterTexas Nature and Environmental Centers

Dan Moulton will highlight the distribution of Texas Environmental Centers, the types of programs that are offered, and descriptions of some of the more unusual Centers.  He will talk about outdoor programs for people of all ages -- guided hikes and activities, summer camps, handicapped-accessible trails, outreach programs, family programs, and many more.  Dan's presentation will be based on his Texas Nature and Environmental Centers Guide, which is an excellent resource for fighting "nature-deficit disorder" by facilitating visits to nature and environmental centers throughout Texas.

Daniel W. Moulton is a wildlife ecologist with a B.A. in biology, a M.S. in wildlife ecology, and a Ph.D. in wildlife science.  He has worked for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Maryland Wildlife Administration, and for over 20 years at the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.  After retirement from TPWD, he taught for over six years as an adjunct professor of environmental science and biology at several colleges in the Dallas area.

 

Water RecyclingMunicipal Water Recycling

Of all our needs, water is the most critical and happens to be something we can't manufacture.  Thankfully, we have technological alternatives.  Recycling used sources of water is a reliable and cost-effective strategy that we can implement quickly without risking damage to our environment or our economy.  The 100,000 residents of Wichita Falls keep their way of life intact despite horribly oppressive drought conditions, thanks to the city's Cypress Water Treatment Plant.  Bringing this technology to Dallas-Fort Worth is one of the best investments we could make to fortify ourselves against future water insecurity.

Jarratt Willis of Texas Conservation Alliance will tell us about municipal water recycling and its benefits.  You may be surprised to learn where your drinking water comes from.

Everyone is welcome.  FREE!  You don't have to be a Sierra Club member.  Just show up.  We'd love to meet you.

Our General Meeting starts at 7:00 pm, but come at 6:30 for snacks, information and fellowship.  Click over to our General Meeting page for more information and a map.

July Backpacking Adventures in Colorado's San Juan Mountain Range

Red Lake TrailDetails of the Dallas Sierra Club July 19-24 backpacking outing in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado are online now. See a description and photos by clicking this link.  The San Juans are the range of the Rocky Mountains that form the Continental Divide from Chama, New Mexico to Telluride, Colorado and beyond. The outing has five itinerary options -- some in the South San Juan Wilderness Area, others in the Weminuche Wilderness Area. Unlike past trips to these areas, we’re relying on private cars and car pools this July to reach trailheads. This minimizes your trip expenses, allows you flexibility to extend travel on either end of the Sierra Club outing dates and enables us to access more trailheads. Early registration is advised, particularly if you want space in our block of reserved cabins near Santa Fe on Saturday night, July 18.

Red, Gold and Wheeler, Labor Day Weekend Backpacking in Northern New Mexico -September 4-8

Wheeler Peak WildernessInformation and the registration forms have been posted for the Labor Day backpacking trip to the Wheeler Peak Wilderness and Wild Rivers Recreation Area near Taos and Red River, NM. Choose from five trips in the beautiful Rio Grande Gorge in the Wild Rivers Recreation Area or the Queste Ranger district of Carson National Forest in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of Northern New Mexico.  This is a bus trip with three days of backpacking and hiking in some of the most scenic areas of Northern New Mexico.  The bus will depart Dallas at 6:30pm Friday evening, Sep. 4 and return about 6:30AM Tuesday morning, Sep. 8, and since this being Labor Day weekend, for most of us it will not use vacation time.  For a description of the trip with photographs and the registration forms follow this link.
