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

Legislative Action Needed on Environmental Bills in Austin
The 2019 Texas Legislature is in full swing.  April is a critical time for the final push to persuade our legislators to pass good environmental legislation and to stop the bad.  We need all interested environmentally-concerned activists to make calls, send emails and take action now.  Come hear about what you can do to make a difference at this critical juncture in the 86th Texas Legislative Session.

Grow Your Own Food in North Texas
Ruth KleinTexas Master Gardener Ruth B. Klein will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about growing your own vegetables in Texas.

Ruth was born and raised in Dallas. She used to wish she were a gardener, but never took it up because it seemed too hot and there were too many bugs and pollens in Texas.

In 2006 she decided to landscape her small yard. The desire to landscape using sound ecological principles ignited a passion for gardening she never knew she had. After a heroic effort to learn about gardening through books and classes, she joined the Master Gardener program in 2009. In 2010 Ruth’s home landscape was chosen to be on the City of Dallas WaterWise Tour.

Her current interest and focus is on community vegetable gardening.  She helped start and leads a community garden at Temple Emanu-El in Dallas where the crop is donated to a local food bank.

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.

Colorado Bend State Park Group Campout - You Are All Invited

Trail SignCamp, Chill, or Hike at Colorado Bend State Park
Dallas Sierra Club has booked a fantastic riverside group campsite for the weekend of April 26-28. Click here for details. This is a big State Park near Bend, Texas, on the north edge of the Hill Country. Spicewood Springs, Gorman Falls, the River Trail or all three are great hike destinations for Saturday morning or afternoon. This trip is good for families, couples and individuals, but you’ll need to sign up early, as the riverside group camp allows only forty campers. Take the back roads to the park to see the spring wildflowers and join us for a great weekend campout!

Wilderness Navigation Two Night Class - May 7 and 8 (Tuesday and Wednesday)

Reading a mapSome walks in the woods are pretty easy, but journeys of all lengths can turn from amazing to catastrophic if you can't find your way. Learn the fundamentals of navigating your way in the wilderness in this fun and comprehensive two-night class. Among the subjects covered are: looking for and purchasing different type maps, how to read maps, how not to get lost, map use if you do get lost, different kinds of compasses and how to use your compass. There will be some discussion about GPS, but our main focus is learning how to use a map and compass so you're not trusting your navigation (and life) to something that takes batteries. If you have a compass, bring it. If not, we'll have extras you can use and will show you what to look for when you purchase your own.
