Book Offers a Look at the State of Texas’ Environment

Photo: Michael Hagerty, Houston Public MediaA new book offers a comprehensive, statewide picture of environmental issues and conservation efforts across Texas. The Texas Landscape Project: Nature and People compiled data from several agencies and groups to offer a better look at the environmental state of Texas.

The book is authored by David Todd, executive director for the Conservation History Association of Texas, and Jonathan Ogren, principal at Siglo Group. Maggie Martin recently sat down with them to discuss how the project came together and how they hope the information in it will benefit the Lone Star State.

Todd and Ogren will be in Houston to discuss their book at an event at Brazos Bookstore July 18, 2016.
