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!

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).
