Come join the Houston Parks & Recreation Department's Natural Resources Management Program (NRMP) in restoring riparian habitat along our city's bayous! We will be planting native trees in our habitat restoration area at Sylvan Rodriguez Park. We will provide shovels. Be sure to bring a refillable water bottle, along with shoes, gloves, and clothes that can get muddy. Pre-registration is required. Register by emailing Naturalresources@houstontx.gov to let us know you are planning to help. We would love to see you there!
The event will take place at 1201 Clear Lake City Blvd, Houston, TX 77062.
