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

Olivewood Cemetery Clean-up @ Olivewood Cemetery
Feb 3 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Olivewood Cemetery Clean-up @ Olivewood Cemetery | Houston | Texas | United States

Olivewood Cemetery Clean-up

Olivewood is located next to White Oak Bayou, and is therefore surrounded by lush flora. It only takes about a week in the summer for the cemetery to be overrun with vegetation. Beyond routine mowing and weeding, the Descendants of Olivewood have begun projects to beautify individual plots, restoring the old landscaping that has changed with time. If you have a knack for clearing brush and landscaping areas that have been lost to time, you would certainly do well to join us on the first or third Saturday of the month. Check the events calendar to stay informed about upcoming events. We welcome individuals and groups for sponsored clean up days, or to join us for a general clean-up day.
Please visit their website for more information about the cemetery and cleanup effort.
