A few things to note about this calendar.
· Events added to this calendar are NOT automatically approved as advanced or basic training opportunities. You MUST get local chapter approval for training hours before attending.
· This is obviously not an exhaustive calendar of all the incredible online opportunities happening right now. Your chapter training directors have been made aware of the calendar and will be adding to it shortly. Please email Mary Pearl (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have something you’d like to add to the calendar
· Each event should have an Organizer listed as a TMN chapter or organization. Please refer questions about the specific events to those organizers, not the TMN state office.
We hope this helps with our TMN volunteers ability to maintain connection and educational engagement during this period of shutdown.

AT: Chapter Program Lauren Simpson “Wildscape Your Yard”
January 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Lauren Simpson is the founder of St. Julian’s Crossing, a FACEBOOK community which teaches how to “Wildscape Your Yard” and documents the pollinator and urban wildlife-friendly space she has made at her just-outside-the-Loop home.
The average neighborhood yard may look pretty, but doesn’t support the range of wildlife that is crucial to a healthy environment and natural community. Good news: yards which incorporate native plants can be both beautiful and beneficial, even becoming Monarch Waystations. Ms. Simpson sows some ideas on how to create a wildlife-friendly garden at your own home for the enjoyment of your family and the benefit of your community. Transform your yard into a beautiful, pollinator paradise!
Ms. Simpson is a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Houston Law Center, where she teaches Lawyering Skills and Strategies. She is a spring 2016 recipient of the University of Houston Teaching Excellence Award (Instructor/Clinical category); one of three 2018 AALS Teachers of the Year selected by the Law Center; and the 2017, 2018, and 2019 Student Bar Association Professor of the Year for Law Center faculty teaching in the part-time program.
