Monthly Volunteer Day at Buffalo Bayou Park @ Wortham Insurance Visitor Center at The Water Works
Dec 16 @ 8:30 am – 11:30 am
Monthly Volunteer Day at Buffalo Bayou Park @ Wortham Insurance Visitor Center at The Water Works | Houston | Texas | United States

Houstonians, ages 9 and up, are invited to join Buffalo Bayou Partnership for community-wide volunteer days at Buffalo Bayou Park happening the third Saturday of each month. Whether volunteering as a large or small group, or individually, your efforts will lead to a healthier environment and a more aesthetically pleasing amenity for all to enjoy.

Volunteers will help with a variety of tasks, including but not limited to: trash pick-up, mulching and weed removal. We do ask that all volunteers bring their own work gloves. All other necessary work tools will be provided by BBP.

Olivewood Cemetery Clean-up @ Historic Olivewood Cemetery
Dec 16 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Olivewood is located next to White Oak Bayou, and is therefore surrounded by lush flora. It only takes about a week in the summer for the cemetery to be overrun with vegetation. Beyond routine mowing and weeding, the Descendants of Olivewood have begun projects to beautify individual plots, restoring the old landscaping that has changed with time. If you have a knack for clearing brush and landscaping areas that have been lost to time, you would certainly do well to join us on the first or third Saturday of the month. Check the events calendar to stay informed about upcoming events. We welcome individuals and groups for sponsored clean up days, or to join us for a general clean-up day.
Please visit their website for more information about the cemetery and cleanup effort.

High Island Workdays @ High Island
Jan 13 @ 8:30 am – 12:00 pm

Workdays are held once a month, October through March on the second Saturday of the month. We start work around 8:30 AM and work until about noon, when we break for lunch, provided by Houston Audubon and prepared by the lunch crew. Lunch at the picnic area of Boy Scout Woods is a good chance to visit with other volunteers and recharge from a morning of exercise and work. After lunch, we take about an hour to tie up any loose ends and clean up.

Come be a part of sanctuary maintenance, habitat restoration, and Houston Audubon’s amazing volunteer workforce. Email Pete Deichmann at pdeichmann@houstonaudubon.org for more information or to be put on the email list.
