Panelists at the “Shades of Green” lunch will discuss their experience as people of color practicing environmentalism and conservation, and offer insight into how Austin’s predominantly white environmental movement can become more collaborative. David Buggs (Director of Diversity and Inclusion at the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department) will moderate a panel including Dominique Bowman (Huston-Tillotson University), Dave Cortez (Sierra Club), and Marisa Perales (environmental attorney).

This is the first in a series of events designed to facilitate discussion and collaboration about diversity, equity, and inclusion in the environmental community in Austin. The next event will be at Huston-Tillotson University on October 14.

Space for this event is limited. The $35 lunch tickets are available online. For more information, contact Nico D’Auterive, Hill Country Conservancy Manager of Events & Marketing,
