Clean-ups and Tree Plantings along the Bayou

Each year (barring Covid restrictions) Greens Bayou Coalition plans approximately 6 Bayou Clean-Ups/Tree Plantings along the bayou. A clean bayou will be a huge step towards improving the quality of life in the Greens Bayou watershed. Trash removal events can be set up regularly, and invasive species removals from park area are also planned as determined by our Reach Committees. Tree Plantings serve the watershed in countless ways. Additional trees not only add shade and beauty along bayou trails and parks, but they clean the air and filter water before it enters the bayou. They also slow the flow of floodwaters from our regular Houston storms and floods. The locations for cleanups and tree plantings come from different places. They may be suggested by Harris County Flood Control District, arise from a member of one of the Reach Committees, or come from a management district who needs trees replaced in a particular park. The trees are donated by Trees for Houston, Wilderness Houston and CenterPoint Energy. Our volunteers are groups from corporations, high school clubs, conservation groups and individuals--hundreds each year.

Kayaking for Kids is a program The Coalition manages from Thomas Bell Foster Park in our south reach, near Interstate 10 and Normandy. The 6 acre park is owned by Houston Parks Board and developed by The Coalition to provide access for paddlers to Greens Bayou. Kayaking for Kids hosts students and youth from nearby school and youth groups. An outfitter is engaged to teach kayaking skills and guide the students on a paddling trip upstream to Strickland Park and back to Foster Park. We partner with local naturalists to provide education about the land-water connection and the plants and animals that are at home along the bayou. Program budget is annual.
