MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR SAT. JAN. 8; 1p.m.: THE TEXAS LEGACY PROJECT

Bad things happen in our environment.  That we know.  But sometimes the crisis lands on our doorstep.  Sometimes the pollution is in our backyard.  And sometimes, the threat to a cherished place or habitat, spurs us to action.

A new book chronicles the stories of Texans who have been compelled to protect the natural resources of this state … the wildlife, the parkland, the waters, and the very air itself.  The book is The Texas Legacy Project:  Stories of Courage and Conservation, a compilation of oral histories beautifully edited by David Todd and David Weisman. In this book, sixty-two Texans speak out about their efforts to preserve and protect the abundantly rich, natural legacy of their diverse communities.

David Todd will be spending the afternoon of Saturday, Jan. 8 at Frontera Audubon talking about the project which is sponsored by the Conservation History Association of Texas.  The project is archived online at texaslegacy.org and is the basis for a beautiful 280 page volume of inspiring essays.  Todd will begin his presentation at 1p.m.; Frontera members are admitted free; others will be charged the usual $5 entry to Frontera Audubon.
