The Water ​Costs of an ​Urban ​Oasis: ​Discovering ​Our ​Own ​Habitat:

Presenting: Dr. Liza Litvak, Ph.D.

Global climate change exacerbates freshwater shortages, especially in dry regions, and it is imperative to lower outdoor water use.​

April 8: Let’s Talk About… Adult OWL Classes!

Saturday 2:30 – 4:30 PM in Room L

Our Whole Lives (OWL): Sexuality Education for Adults 35+ is coming to UUCT this spring! Honest, accurate information about sexuality changes lives. It dismantles stereotypes and assumptions, builds self-acceptance and self-esteem, fosters healthy relationships, improves decision making, and has the potential to save lives.

OWL is an interactive, secular curriculum that helps adults address their attitudes, values and feelings about themselves, their sexuality and others’ sexuality in the context of four core values: Self Worth, Sexual Health, Responsibility, and Justice and Inclusivity.

Enrollment is free for UUCT members and supporting friends, and may be extended to others if space allows, for a modest fee. The Adult program is designed for adults ages 35 and older, but younger adults may participate. Please register quickly, as class size is limited.

For more information and to register, contact Melinda Stuart-Tilley (frenchyfrye@hotmail.com) or Holly Thompson (850-877-5223 or hollyorders@aol.com).
