Exploration Green Conservancy’s Planting Event @ Exploration Green in Clear Lake City
Nov 18 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm

Exploration Green Conservancy and partner organizations invite volunteers Saturday, November 18, 2017, 8 am-12 pm (or until all trees are planted) to tree planting on the Habitat Island at Exploration Green in Clear Lake City, led by Trees for Houston. Native trees and wetlands on the island, situated in Exploration Green’s first lake, will create a refuge for migratory birds and waterbirds. Exploration Green Conservancy and project partners are redeveloping the former Clear Lake City golf course into a state of the art stormwater detention and recreation area.

Access to the island itself will be by boat and will be limited to 50 people. However, there will be volunteer activities on shore as well. Children with a parent present are welcome to do work onshore. Wear clothes and shoes that can get wet and muddy. Tools will be provided.

Parking will be along the street near the entrance to the park at 1800 Reseda Rd, Houston TX 77062.

In the event of inclement weather, the rain date will be November 25, 2017.

Nature Discovery Center’s Monday Morning Gardening @ Nature Discovery Center
Dec 4 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm


Join us for some light fall gardening on the first Monday of the month and help us care for the park. We’ll be removing some invasive species, growing out & planting natives, watering recently planted plants and more.

  • No experience necessary. Experienced staff will work with you & guide you through the projects.
  • Come dressed for the weather and prepared to get dirty.
  • Bring your own gloves and gardening gear or use ours.

If you are interested in volunteer gardening, but cannot make it on the 1st Monday morning of the month, contact Mary Ann. She can probably use your help on another day!
