Enjoyable and entertaining, the programs are geared toward educating our young people about our natural habitat and the rewards of planting a garden and watching it thrive. Kids Grow events, where children are invited to plant vegetables, herbs, and sometimes flowers, are held quarterly. The young gardeners and their families are encouraged to come back and enjoy the results of their labor, picking fresh lettuce, cabbage, herbs, carrots and more to be enjoyed back at home.

The Swamp Thing Gala – Bayou Land Conservancy Benefit @ Southwestern Energy Headquarters
Nov 11 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Come join Bayou Land Conservancy on November 11, 2017, as they celebrate another successful year of conserving land along our bayous, creeks and streams at their “Swamp Thing Gala.” You might even learn some fun facts about wetlands and all the critters and plants that live there. Share a night of inspiration with co-workers, clients, friends and nature lovers. Who knows, you could catch a glimpse of the mysterious “swamp thing”! The event will be held at the beautiful Southwestern Energy Headquarters, a 26-acre property located adjacent to the Spring Creek Greenway just off I-45. The grounds are planted with native plants and grasses that are irrigated with water from the nearby retention ponds. The sites serves as an excellent example of environmentally friendly actions that we can all employ. Tickets and sponsorships are on sale and can be purchased online at bayoulandconservancy.secure.force.com.
