Margaret Jenkins Park Tree Planting Event
Come join HPARD and the Student Conservation Association in restoring riparian habitat along our city's bayous! We will be planting 1400 native trees in our habitat restoration area at Margaret Jenkins Park along Sims Bayou. 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!
