Hello Dallas area Young Sierrans! Candace and I have been a bit busy lately and are taking a break from organizing regular events until our calendars clear up a bit. We’re sorry for any inconvenience, and we hope that everyone is doing well.
We encourage everyone to check out the many DFW area “green” or sustainably-minded groups that are sprouting in our backyard. Some recommendations include: Dallas GreenDrinks, Net Impact DFW, EcoTuesday and GreenWeavers. Each group offers something different ranging from more social to more business networky.
We appreciate everyone’s continued interest in the Dallas Young Sierrans and encourage folks to share their outing plans (i.e., day hike or bike ride) or any new “green” ideas (i.e., new “green” restaurant) with fellow Young Sierrans via our Dallas Young Sierrans Facebook page. We will continue to post the occasional info-share.
After almost four years of leading this subgroup of the Dallas Sierra Club, Candace and I have begun discussing a succession plan. If anyone is interested in learning more about co-leading the Dallas Young Sierrans, please contact us and we’d be happy to involve you in our conversation.
In the meantime, we hope everyone has a great fall. We hope to see you out there!

Please join us for a special opportunity to meet National Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune.
Texas is in a unique environmental position: it is a major battleground in the national ﬁght against coal-ﬁred power plants, and it is also a potential national leader in renewable energy. Come listen to Michael’s thoughts on how a slight political shift could produce an environmental majority in the Texas House which could signal much smarter energy legislation leading to cleaner air and water in Texas. A new governor could help make that legislation become a reality and assure that the state environmental regulatory agency enforces the laws.
