H-GAC’s Regional Recycling Roundtable – Recycling Center Field Trip @ H-GAC, Lobby on the First Floor
Nov 8 @ 8:45 am – 1:00 pm

As landfill space and raw materials become scarcer, recycling of used materials becomes a more cost-effective and sensible option. Periodically the Houston-Galveston Area Council (H-GAC) hosts workshops to bring new ideas and knowledge to local governments on a wide range of recycling-related topics.

We will travel by bus from H-GAC to two Waste Management Materials Recovery Facilities:

  • Houston Gasmer Drive Single Stream MRF: 4939 Gasmer Drive, Houston, 77035
  • Houston Clay Road Traditional MRF: 9590 Clay Road, Houston, TX 77080

Please arrive at H-GAC by 8:45 a.m. We will meet in the lobby on the first floor. The bus will leave H-GAC promptly at 9:00 a.m. and return by 1:00 p.m. 

Registration is required for this roundtable field trip as space is limited on the bus and at the facilities.

Houston Audubon November Speaker Event: The Genius of Birds @ Matchbox 4
Nov 9 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

For decades, people have written off birds as largely witless, driven solely by instinct, and their brains as primitive, capable of only the simplest mental processes.  But it is not so. Jennifer Ackerman, and her book “The Genius of Birds” explores the new view of birds as “thinkers”—cunning, playful, witty, greedy, cranky, joyful, competitive.  She looks at the intelligence of birds within the context of easily observed behavior in our own surroundings and brings to it the latest science from lab and field. Join the Houston Audubon for an interesting presentation from Jennifer Ackerman about birds and their amazing intelligence.

Houston Audubon has partnered with Blue Willow Bookshop for this event. Pre-order your copy of the Genius of Birds with Blue Willow though this link: http://www.bluewillowbookshop.com/event/houston-audubon-event-jennifer-a… or purchase your book at the event. 15% of all book sales will be donated to Houston Audubon and there will be a book signing after the presentation. Although this is a free event, seating is limited so get your tickets online.
