Wed. Feb. 18—General Meeting. Botswana has been called Africa's "Living Eden," and the Sierra Club International Outing that Carol Roark and Lon Burnam, both Fort Worth Sierra Club members, took there certainly confirmed the wonders that can be seen there. From the majesty of a herd of elephants walking through the brush, to a cheetah hunting, to the vibrant turquoise, purple, and black of a lilac breasted roller, the photos and stories about this incredible land should not be missed. We meet at 7 PM in the Azalea Room of the Fort Worth Botanic Garden Center, 3220 Botanic Garden Blvd. at University Drive, just north of I-30 in Fort Worth. The speaker is followed by refreshments and announcements. All are welcome!

Wed. Mar. 18—General Meeting. Robert Kent is the North Texas Area Director for the Trust for Public Land (TPL), a national nonprofit that creates parks and protects land for people, ensuring healthy, livable communities for generations to come. In November 2014, TPL opened its North Texas Area Office with Mr. Kent at the helm. He will present on the Lake Worth Greenprint, a recent TPL study of the Lake Worth watershed, as well as other TPL projects happening in the North Texas area. We meet at 7 PM in the Azalea Room of the Fort Worth Botanic Garden Center, 3220 Botanic Garden Blvd. at University Drive, just north of I-30 in Fort Worth.
