The Texas Coastal Watershed Program holds weekly volunteer days for their stormwater wetland program, 9am-12pm on Thursdays. Volunteers help propagate plants in the wetland plant nursery at Exploration Green in Clear Lake City, or at the Gulf Coast Bird Observatory in Lake Jackson. The stormwater wetland program is developing demonstration projects to show how wetlands can be designed into flood control basins to clean contaminants from surface runoff, protect our bayous and bays, and provide a refuge for wildlife. A schedule and more information is available by contacting Mcedwards@tamu.edu.
You’re invited to join Memorial Park Conservancy in growing native plants for the Park. Volunteers will work in the Park Greenhouse planting, weeding, watering, and caring for native Texas wildflowers, grasses, shrubs, and trees. No experience necessary!
Volunteers must be 12 and older and accompanied by a parent or guardian. Adults over 18 will sign in at the event; children must have a waiver, available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
