In Super, Natural Christians: How We Should Love Nature, Dr. Sallie McFague writes, “We will not save what we do not love, and we cannot love what we do not know.” Our Texas state parks system helps people across the state get to know nature and come to love the rocks, streams, lakes, trees, beaches and wetlands of this beautiful piece of earth we call Texas. Experiencing and appreciating the gifts of nature encourages us to care for God's creation.
On Monday, March 18, 2013, Dallas Interfaith Power & Light invites you to come together with others to learn about the Texas state parks system, how it might be impacted by budget cuts, and how we can help protect our parks for future generations.
Speakers will include: Brian Trusty, Director of the Texas Audubon Society; George Bristol, Director of the Texas Coalition for Conservation; Doug Evans, Director of Grapevine Parks & Recreation; and John Crompton, Distinguished Professor, Texas A&M University; and Yaira A. Robinson, Associate Director of the Texas Interfaith Center for Public Policy.
This event is open to the public; people of all faiths--and no faith--are welcome!
