Thanks to TCU's Dr. Mike Slattery for hosting the public debut of our North Texas CLEAN Air Force – an exciting new effort combining citizen know-how with academic expertise to better help us identify DFW air pollution problems. Representatives from TCU, UTA, UTD, UNT, UNTHSC were on site. Thanks as well to all the supporters and curiosity-seekers who showed up to see the show.
This was the first of what we hope will be a series of such events around North Texas to show off the capacity and potential of this new tool for citizens. Stay tuned for news on when we'll be coming to a campus near you.

We're adding an exiting new high-tech tool to our fight for cleaner air. One that can replace, not just fight, the status quo.
Air-monitoring drones can reveal pollution hot spots stationary monitors can't. They can respond to accidents and tell you whether that plume of smoke really is "harmless."
One hour of drone flight time costs $90. A full 72 hours in the air costs about $6500. That's our goal today.
Your lungs are worth it.
We're the only clean air group in DFW with full-time staff.
All our board members live here.
