The City of Dallas’ Office of Environmental Quality, in conjunction with the Environmental Law Section (ELS) of the Dallas Bar Association, is pleased to announce the City’s first ever North Texas Climate Change Symposium. This half-day event will be held at the beautiful Belo Mansion in downtown Dallas on March 9, 2018.
