Join us for the first of seven "Neighborhood Priorities for Parks: Smart Growth for Dallas Community Meetings," where we will share and discuss the physical, social, environmental, and economic factors that influence the ease and barriers to access and experience of Dallas' parks and open space. The outcomes of these meetings will directly influence the development of the Smart Growth for Dallas "decision support" tool that will help Dallas prioritize its investments in parks based on their economic, social, and ecological benefits.

Change begins with you! Once the elections are over, the hard work begins to protect and preserve the Lone Star state in the 2017 Texas Legislature. Will you join us on November 12 for an important gathering to discuss our legislative strategy?

A lot is on the line next year: renewable energy, state and local park funding, oil and gas reform, attacks on local control, water conservation, groundwater management, air quality and clean transportation programs, tires, batteries, and waste of all types. We need leaders like you to help move our agenda forward!

Texas Campaign for the Environment’s North Texas office is celebrating the end of election season and its own progress in advancing recycling and sustainability at a house party.

Texas Campaign for the Environment started with a vision of reducing waste and pollution back in 1991 with offices in Dallas and Houston. That year, the group’s community organizers generated 70,000 petition signatures in Dallas, and 20,000 signatures in Arlington that helped convince the cities to start curbside recycling programs.
