Hace calor!

Did you know that Houston is hot – even on the coldest day of the year??? I bet you already did know that. Here’s something I didn’t know. I read the following quote on the website for the Cool Houston Project and was quite amazed:

From 1972 to 1999, the Houston region lost about 400 square miles of tree canopy or 25 acres per day, causing Houston’s urban heat islands to grow larger and hotter. Trees remove pollutants from the air.

There will be an event Thursday, May 11 at the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center from 9:00 a.m to 4:00 p.m.
