Another great Oak Cliff Earth Day was held Sunday at Lake Cliff Park in Dallas. The cloudy weather was perfect  – and cool, as were the folks we saw at the festival. Many brought along their canine companions, with some decked-out for the annual Mutt Strutt.

That's good news for greenies because that means fewer events overlap and you can attend an ecofest every week for a month. Check out the line up below – all events are free.

Summers in Texas extend deep into September, even October. Months after the longest day, the ground continues to absorb and radiate heat.

Trapped in our air-conditioned caves for too long, we need relief! Here is a selection of nature places to go green while cooling off.
