Event Details

The Texas Tribune is excited to present a special statewide series of public events looking ahead five years in eight major policy areas: criminal justice, energy, the environment, health, higher education, immigration, public education and transportation. Each event features a conversation with leading thinkers and policymakers on that day's particular subject.

Join us at Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi for the fifth installment of this series: a discussion on the future of the environment in Texas. 

Our panelists are:

  • State Rep. Geanie Morrison, R-Victoria, Chairwoman of the House Environmental Regulation Committee
  • Toby Baker, Commissioner of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality
  • John Hall, Texas State Director of Clean Energy at the Environmental Defense Fund
  • Mike Wetz, associate professor in the Department of Life Sciences, TAMUCC

This event will be held in the University Center's Anchor Ballroom (#31 on the campus map) at TAMUCC. The event is free and open to the public and includes a light lunch. Parking will be available at Bayside Parking Garage (parking fee not included in registration). 


The Texas Tribune's statewide Conversation Series features in-depth discussions with prominent elected officials and newsmakers moderated by Evan Smith, CEO and editor-in-chief, and other expert journalists from The Texas Tribune. You can also watch the event on our livestream if you are unable to attend in person.
