Art meets science in the Artist Boat Eco-Art Camp Sessions! Artist Boat Eco-Art Campers will experience true science and art enrichment with the creation of Eco-Art to beautify yards and homes. Join us for inspirational education.

Session themes are offered in which campers will use the scientific method to investigate processes in our ocean. Each camp will culminate in creating works of art that illustrate the knowledge that campers have acquired about our ocean. Camp sessions are designed for children Kindergarten-Sixth Grade.

Registration is required and spaces are limited to ensure small camp size and individual attention. To register, please call 409-770-0722 or email residency@artistboat.org.

An Introduction to DRAWDOWN and What You Can Do About It @ First Unitarian Universalist Church
Jan 14 @ 1:00 pm
An Introduction to DRAWDOWN and What You Can Do About It @ First Unitarian Universalist Church | Houston | Texas | United States

Our first goal in reversing global warming is drawdown. This is the point where the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere levels off and begins to decline. If we get moving, we could reach drawdown by 2050.  At this event co-sponsored by Green Building Resource Center and Houston Climate Protection Alliance, the Climate Action Team of First Unitarian Universalist Church will summarize the book, Drawdown, then break into groups to focus on particular solutions:  organic farming and land use, family planning, refrigerant management, or your favorite action issue.
