Fall is a great time to learn more about trees! Some may even put on a colorful display as the season progresses. Jim McKee, a Master Naturalist, tree lover, and bird watcher will be leading more walks in the park this fall to teach us how to identify the trees that live here in Russ Pitman Park. Jim shares lots of interesting historical and biological facts about the many species of trees we have in Russ Pitman Park as well as how to identify them. You are welcome to come to one or all!
This is a FREE, drop-in program. No registration required.

Eastside as Found by Jae Boggess – Funded by a grant from Rice Design Alliance, this photography exhibit documents industrial and commercial buildings east of downtown. In danger of demolition, these neglected and vacant buildings help tell the story of Houston as a repeated boomtown and have the potential to define a unique sense of place as these neighborhoods change. Architect Jae Boggess hopes that the exhibit will prompt a dialogue about what will become of our city’s built history.
Encounter: Meeting Points on Buffalo Bayou is a collaboration between students from the University of Houston Graphic Design and Creative Writing programs with funding support from the Mitchell Center for the Arts. The exhibit features proposals for site-based installations and engagement events to be held on sites along Buffalo Bayou’s East Sector in spring 2018. The installations express an interpretation of the history, economy, resilience, culture and community values of the East End and Fifth Ward communities as they relate to the bayou and green spaces.
On view through January 29 (Monday–Friday from 9 am–5 pm).
