Hike, protect, and explore North Texas in July with the Cross Timbers Sierra Club
July 6, 2015 – Join the Cross Timbers Sierra Club for a hike, park clean up, and learn how to help fight climate change this month at various events and meetings.
The Cross Timbers Sierra Club group serves Denton, Collin, Fannin, and Grayson counties. Our monthly meeting will include guest speaker Ricky Bradley, the Regional Coordinator, Group Leader and Information Technology Director of the local office of Citizens Climate Lobby.
"It's never been more obvious to Citizens' Climate Lobby that there are Republicans who are ready to lead on climate and energy policy. When we can keep the discussion focused on solutions and away from causes or assigning blame we find there's common ground," Bradley said.
The meeting will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the McCallum Conference Room at the Frisco Public Library at 6101 Frisco Square Blvd #3000, Frisco, TX 75034. The Cross Timbers Sierra Club leadership committee will also have an update on legislative items concerning fracking and other issues, an opportunity to help save sea turtles effected by the 2010 BP Gulf oil spill, and how you can donate recyclable items to Terra Cycle and help raise funds for the group.
