From Texas Parks & WIldlife, an incredibly clever convergence of Halloween and learning about nature! Looks like it continues throughout the month too! [TPWD] Have you wondered about your abilities to live in the wild, such as after an apocalyptic event? Well, we’re going to talk about the basic skills needed to find food, water, shelter, and space in our short (somewhat humorous) program. We’ll begin at the Nature Center and travel to find the necessary items for survival. Then, we’ll discuss the importance of plants and human uses of the area. Finally, we'll test your skills to survive a zombie apocalypse.

The People's Climate March – held just days before the United Nations Climate Summit – just might be the biggest public outpouring of support for climate solutions this planet has ever seen. It is an unparalleled opportunity to let our world leaders know how urgently the public is calling for solutions to climate disruption, and how we need to move quickly from dirty fuels to clean energy. If you can’t make it though, there are many solidarity events in Texas.
Don’t forget to use #peoplesclimate if you’re tweeting from any of these events!
