Calendar

The CEC Calendar of Events features any Houston Area event centered around the environment. CEC’s network of partners are invited to submit events that they wish to share with the public, from volunteer opportunities, to lectures, to community celebrations! These events are updated weekly to ensure the public has as many opportunities as possible to participate.
