CCL 3rd Coast Regional Conference @ University of Houston, 271 Student Center
Feb 3 @ 9:00 am – 6:00 pm

Welcome to Citizens’ Climate Lobby’s Fifth Annual Regional Conference in Texas! People who have been to our regional conferences have called them “life-changing, empowering, and inspiring.”

CCL will gather this year in Houston, the major energy hub of our region and a city that has faced many climate change enhanced disasters in these past three years. CCL will gather to share our support for policies which will manage carbon emissions and help our region transition to the clean energy capital of the country. No single individual can create the political will for action on climate, but all of us are affected by climate change. Together, we have the power to restore the climate by coming together to learn how to move Congress towards solutions.

The 2018 CCL 3rd Coast Regional Conference, located in Houston, TX is an opportunity for newcomers and experienced CCL members to gather to learn, practice skills, inspire each other, and strategize in moving our country toward climate solutions. The 3rd Coast Region – Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi – is large and diverse, but common concerns are shared due to the climate impacts already manifesting in and along our coasts, farmlands, cities, canyons, and bayous.

Speakers will include:

Dr. John Nielsen-Gammon, Texas State Climatologist
Greg Bertelsen, Senior Vice President, Climate Leadership Council
Madeleine Para, Vice President of Programs, Citizens’ Climate Lobby

TOPICS

January 6, 2018 – “Winterizing for Wildlife”

Ever wonder how birds and other wildlife make it through winter? It is widely known that many bears hibernate during the winter, but most other wildlife must acclimatize to the season. Food sources for birds become scarce and protected shelter is harder to find among bare trees. Small mammals like opossums, raccoons, and skunks must also make adjustments. Anoles, snakes, toads, and frogs must also adapt to the changes.

Join BNC for ideas to make a winter-friendly habitat for wildlife that may visit this chilly season. Naturalist, Crissy Butcher, shares tips on easy projects to provide shelter, food, and water for feathers and furry friends as the temperatures drop.

 

February 3, 2018 – “Wilderness First Aid”


For questions, please contact Crissy Butcher at (281)420-7130.

Full Moon Hike @ BAYTOWN NATURE CENTER
Feb 3 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Join the Baytown Nature Center each month to explore a different section of the nature center in hopes of seeing nocturnal animals. All sorts of things have been spotted – no lions, tigers, or bears, but definitely raccoons, opossums, coyotes, owls, fireflies, and even flying squirrels!

This monthly 90-minute hike begins just after sunset. Hikers are asked to wear comfortable clothing. Small children should not attend since hikers have a better chance of viewing nocturnal animals in a relatively quiet atmosphere.

Routes and start times vary monthly. Meet at the Visitor’s Center unless otherwise stated. Hikes are weather permitting and free with general admission to the nature center.

If in doubt about the weather, contact (281)424-9198 or check BNC’s Facebook page.

For questions, please contact Crissy Butcher at (281)420-7130.
