Get a West Texas-style introduction to all things environmentally sustainable Oct. 26-27 at the Terlingua Green Scene Sustainability Festival. Held at the Terlingua Ghost Town, the festival will include demonstrations on everything from solar power and sustainable gardening to making papercrete and recycling; as well as demos on how to protect our night sky. The event is hosted by the Terlingua Community Garden in partnership with Big Bend Ranch State Park - Texas Parks and Wildlife.

This year's theme is "Save our Stars" and will showcase the importance of healthy night skies. The TPWD Sustainability Team will provide information and demonstrations on sustainable living and rangers from Big Bend Ranch State Park will provide information about dark-skies and ways to reduce light pollution. A stargazing program will be held by rangers from Big Bend National Park on Saturday evening.

Along with environmental sustainability demonstrations, the festival will host vendors selling goods and food, activities for kids, including face painting, fortune telling, pumpkin painting and live music.
