Conservation Committee

Thanks to the nine people who were able to make plans with Dick and me Friday. Issues they are working on include: Pioneer Park landscaping and maintenance, Lucas recycling, promoting plant-based eating to combat climate change, promoting reusable shopping bags through grocers, environmental justice, promoting Dallas Sierra Club speakers to community groups, and allying with other local conservation groups on local air and water issues. If you were unable to make that meeting your contribution is still welcome. Specifically we need:

  • club members with particular expertise who can speak on conservation topics
  • club members to represent us at events by standing at a table with our display board and talking to people about Dallas Sierra Club,
  • club members who will take part in months-long planning for Earth Wind Fire Energy Summit 2019
  • club members who will help plan solar cooking, composting, or recycling demonstrations that we can do at Earth Day Oak Cliff, April 15, 2018

Ask Congress not to cut funds for EPA Superfund cleanup
