Join us the 4th Saturday of each month to restore native prairie habitat under the Post Oak trees. Hermann Park Conservancy is seeking volunteers to help restore Bayou Parkland, an area in Hermann Park once used as an outdoor science classroom. Volunteers are needed to help restore the habitat by removing overgrown plants from around the ponds, remove dead branches and weeds, invasive removal, and implement a pocket prairie. This is a great volunteer service opportunity for groups and youth, as well learn about our mixed oak savannah and the benefit of restoring native grasses. Large groups of 40+ must carpool, parking is limited. Please contact Director of Volunteer Programs to participate.
