Conservation Implications of Fracking
on UT Lands in West Texas
Laurence Gibson, Sierra Club
This meeting will be a joint meeting with the El Paso Regional Group of the Sierra Club. The program is an update to 2020's "Fracking Orogrande" presentation at the Centennial Museum with an added focus on wildlife impacts of drilling activity. Come learn about the Otero Mesa in Texas and University of Texas land resources.
This will be a hybrid meeting. The in-person meeting will be at the Centennial Museum at UTEP. Doors will open at 6:45, and parking is available in the lot behind the museum. The online part will open about 10 minutes early for people to get logged in and chat with each other. Pre-registration is required. Please click here to register. The meeting is open to everyone, whether you are an Audubon member or not.

The El Paso/Trans-Pecos Audubon Society is a chapter of the National Audubon Society. We have a large territory, all of Texas west of the Pecos River ("Trans-Pecos"). Our members are found throughout the Trans-Pecos, but most live in the region's largest city, El Paso. Birds, birding, wildlife, the environment, and our community are the concerns of the El Paso/Trans-Pecos Audubon Society.
