Lantern festivals are a central part of Chinese culture and date back thousands of years. Join us as this ancient tradition comes to the Fort Worth Botanic Garden where you will see over 20 sets of lanterns crafted from silk, wire and steel and where you can spend an evening filled with fun, food, and adventure. This event offers visitors the opportunity to experience an event rarely staged outside of Asia.

Earth X is bigger than ever this year and is seeking volunteers to help out at the giant eco-expo April 26-28 at Fair Park in Dallas. This is a great opportunity to gain experience, network and be part of the world's largest eco-fest.
Earth X volunteer manager Melinda Garde said there are more than 30 different opportunities available for volunteers.
"Volunteers are the face of EarthX. As a volunteer, you are an integral part of the process of changing the way people think, work and live," said Garde. "Volunteers will engage attendees with fun hands-on activities that teach how to make a difference through science, technology and innovations in thought leading to a sustainable future."
Volunteers get a T-shirt and snacks. There are two shifts: 9 a.m. -2 p.m., 1 p.m.-6 p.m.

Annabelle Corboy and Martha Siegel are teaching a hands-on workshop in which students will download and learn to use free Smartphone Apps that can help them explore and document the natural world.

We will also look at Merlin Bird ID and AllTrails. If time and weather permit, the last class will include a field trip to a nearby park.
Students must have a Smartphone. Both Androids and iPhones will be supported. This class is part of the Senior Education program at Tarrant County College and is open to citizens 55 and older.
