Join us at our next monthly program: SEPTEMBER GENERAL MEETING (SEPTEMBER 11, 2014) at 7 p.m.

Program Title:  "ELEPHANT AND RHINOCEROS CONSERVATION With Special Guest: Rick Barongi"

In September, the Sierra Club takes an in-depth look at the conservation efforts for some the world's most amazing creatures: elephants and rhinoceros. Renown zoologist Rick Barongi, Executive Vice President of Conservation at the Houston Zoo, has spent countless hours in Africa studying these magnificent creatures, and is an expert in their conservation. When he was the Director of the Houston Zoo and designer of Disney's Animal Kingdom, he was well known for his knowledge in zoological park management and exhibit design, but his passion is conservation of the world's great creatures. Come visit with us on September 11 at 7:30 PM and see that passion. From working in zoos from coast-to-coast, to extensive travels in Africa and South America, Rick has unique experience and insight to share. Best of all, he will share his insight in a special presentation free and open to the public. Doors open at 7:00 PM.


(Social period begins at 7:00 PM. Main program begins at 7:30 PM.)
Location: Pecore Hall of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, 1805 West Alabama (at the corner of West Alabama and Woodhead).  Houston, TX. map

Ample parking is available behind the church.

Pecos Wilderness Backpack
October 14-17 (Fri-Mon) - The Pecos Wilderness is a symphony of dark piney forests, alpine meadows, deep lakes, and many of the New Mexico's highest mountains. Within the boundaries of this expansive area are several landmarks including Truchas Peak which tops of at 13,103 feet, and the southern stretch of the Rocky Mountains. The terrain varies from open meadows in the Pecos River Valley to the steep canyons of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. Wildlife ranges from deer and elk to big horn sheep, turkeys and grouse. There are 15 lakes, and eight major streams to sustain both plant and animal habitat, including the native Rio Grande Cutthroat Trout. Hiking and primitive camping are great ways to enjoy the beauty of the Pecos Wilderness. Join us in this strenuous backpacking trip to visit this wilderness northeast of Santa Fe, NM. We will fly to Albuquerque on the 14th, rent the vans and drive to the wilderness. The return flight will be on Monday, October 17th. For more information contact Gus Cei at guscei@yahoo.com or 713-962-5813.   Status:   Space Available
