You have a day to recover after Valentine’s Day* before another emotion-laden ritual begins: early voting for primary elections. If you aren’t sick of politics yet, you can learn more from the League of Women Voters of the Houston Area (check out their video about the Primary Process in Texas), VoteTexas.org, or your local county clerk/chief elections officer. Remember, your vote impacts our environment. Your non-vote does so too.
* Some special opportunities for Valentine’s Day:
- If HMNS has named a cockroach “CEC,” I don’t know about it.
- It’s not too late to eat Green Eggs and Kale to support Urban Harvest. You have through Sunday to dine and do good.
HMNS, Urban Harvest, Hermann Park Conservancy, Houston Arboretum, and many other organizations have some great environmental (and romantic) events coming up, so please be sure to check the calendar on the left, below the table of contents.
If you’d rather stay in, you can curl up on the couch and check out some of the films that we included in the Wild & Scenic Film Festival On Tour a few weeks ago. Not all are available, and many are previews or shorter versions, but we’ve put a playlist together on CEC’s Youtube channel. The playlist includes the excellent local films provided by and featuring the Houston Zoo and Katy Prairie Conservancy.
