ABOUT SAVING PLANET HOUSTON
Saving Planet Houston is a first of its kind course which explores local conservation efforts in a globalized context. The series will consist of three weekday evening classes and a Saturday field trip. Class participants will learn from local experts about the historic, current, and projected status of ecosystems and wildlife in the Greater Houston Region, discover the connections between local ecosystems and Houston’s economic and cultural development and explore how local groups are working to safeguard wildlife diversity.

The series was hosted by the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center on February 8, 15, and 22, 2017. The series was curated by the Katy Prairie Conservancy.
