Going Green Lecture: The Air We Breath

by Dr. Stephanie Thomas

How much do you know about the air we breathe in and around the Woodlands and Montgomery County?  We’re seemingly a long way from the congestion and industry of Houston, but are we subject to similar air quality issues?

We courage you to join Dr. Stephanie Thomas, a researcher and community organizer at Public Citizen, Houston.  She will addresses these issues and some of the upcoming opportunities to improve our air quality.

Children and students are welcome!
