Arlington Conservation Council: Texas' Environment in the Trump Era - Arlington

Feb 1 2017 - 7:00pm
Fielder Museum
1616 W Abram
Arlington , TX

Luke Metzger, the founding director of Environment Texas, will speak on threats to the environment posed by the Trump administration and opportunities to help protect the environment locally. 

Luke Metzger is the founding Director of Environment Texas, a statewide, citizen-funded advocate for clean air, clean water and open spaces. The San Antonio Current has called Mr. Metzger "long one of the most energetic and dedicated defenders of environmental issues in the state." He has played a key role in dozens of successful environmental campaigns, including winning permanent protection for the Christmas Mountains of Big Bend, getting Shell and ChevronPhillips to cut air pollution at two Texas refineries and chemical plants, and getting the Legislature to dramatically boost funding for water conservation and state parks.
