The Future Of Extreme Weather In Austin

The latest models for the Austin climate predict changes that will affect our lives, and the way we plan for the future. This free workshop will focus on the affects, and help you plan ahead.
For over a decade the Zero Waste Network has been training individuals and organizations save money, protect the environment, and reduce risks.

Working in partnership with state agencies, the federal, government, universities and non-profits we helped develop a series of trainings to help individuals:
