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.

Dear Green Source DFW readers,
Here are my recommendations for speakers at Earth Day Texas. There are talks on voting, water sense, extinction (film) and many other topics. Note that many of my choices have to do with food. I guess I was hungry when I was choosing.  Comments are invited.
