Fort Worth Prairie Fest is the annual fundraiser for Friends of Tandy Hills Natural Area. Learn more about how funds are plowed back into Tandy Hills HERE.

Prairie Fest grew from a small neighborhood event in 2006 to become the “Best Outdoor Cultural Event in 2010”, according to the Fort Worth Weekly. By 2011, Prairie Fest had attracted hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of visitors to Tandy Hills.

For 2012, Prairie Fest has been re-imagined and re-focused back to discovery and enjoyment of Tandy Hills, itself. Instead of a single event, there will be three festivals throughout the Spring on the last Saturdays of March, April and May. Event hours will be from 4 PM - Dusk.

Hold On to Your Hats Eco Amigos....

The year is going to start off with a bang.....including a new environmental hazard which is imminently threatening our backyard (you have to come to find out about it).

Catch the scoop of what it is and how fast it is coming by joining me at Picasso's off Forest and Inwood (across from Jesuit's soccer fields) in Dallas this Thursday night at 6:30.

Smitty and I will be hot off an DMNews ed board meeting to expose this new threat to DFW's water and air quality....and we need your help.

When you get there, we'll also let you know what is going on with the Keystone Pipeline (it's still not over despite the President's decision), gas drilling, the Exide plant, and more.

Thanks and PLEASE forward to friends/places that can announce this meeting.

Dallas Sierra Club General Meeting Tuesday, January 10

We have two great programs for you at our January General Meeting.  Our first program is a short presentation about the controversial subject of climate engineering.  Our main program will look at native plants of North Texas.

Climate Engineering
Geoengineering, also called climate engineering, is the term used to describe activities designed to intentionally alter the earth's natural environment to counteract the effects of climate change.  Almost everyone agrees that use of geoengineering methods would be very risky and quite likely to have significant unintended consequences.  Should research be undertaken?  Is geoengineering the Plan B in the event that current efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are unsuccessful?  Sierra Club member Paul Heller will discuss this controversial subject.  Paul Heller was trained as an electrical engineer at Purdue with an MBA from Wharton.
