Saturday, January 20th, 2018 is the largest volunteer event of the year at Memorial Park! Join Memorial Park Conservancy, Trees for Houston, and Houston Parks and Recreation Department in planting hundreds of native trees along the Park’s Eastern border.
What is Urban Wild?
Urban Wild is a group of young professionals actively supporting the work of Memorial Park Conservancy through membership and service. In return, Urban Wild members are exposed to various professional networks, as well as opportunities to learn more about, and advocate for, a treasured Houston greenspace.
Urban Wild members enjoy all benefits of the Friends of Memorial Park membership program, and have their own special perks such as Bridge Bash, happy hours and a customized Day of Service volunteer opportunity. This is membership with a mission, and is open to ages 21 and up interested in building a deeper relationship with Memorial Park.
Start 2018 by learning ways to get involved with Memorial Park! The Park is growing and with that comes more opportunities for volunteers. Join Memorial Park Conservancy for an open house at the Cullen Running Trails Center to learn more about their volunteer program and how you can best get involved.
The 2018 event, co-chaired by Rosanna and Myron Blalock and Gayle and Richard Hightower, along with honorary chairs Terry and Tommy Smith, will be a celebration of Memorial Park and the work and dedication of its ardent supporters.
An Evening Picnic theme will welcome guests as they gather for cocktails at 6:30p, a seated dinner at 7:30p, and dancing the night away. “Bee” casual; no ties.
The 10th annual Brunch Run in Memorial Park is the only race with such a fun after-party! The Brunch Run is an ideal option for park lovers and companies alike to not only show their support of Memorial Park but to have fun while doing it. Event sponsors receive robust media exposure, plus an opportunity to host their employees in participation in a health and wellness event. At the post-race party in Picnic Loop, enjoy food and beverages from local vendors, music, and an awards ceremony.
