Protecting One of Houston’s Great Natural Resources

Buffalo Bayou Buffalo Bayou and its wooded riparian habitat is one of Houston's great natural resources. The Energy Corridor District has always recognized the part it plays in outdoor recreation, transportation connects and the quality of life it provides for the Harris County residents.  To protect such a resource, efforts must be made to reestablish native plants for wildlife and erosion control reasons. Recently the Bayou Preservation Association partnered with the Boy Scouts of America's local Troop 1919 to teach environmental stewardship along the bayou. Invasive plants such as ligustrum, privet, Japanese honeysuckle, crape myrtles and Chinese tallows were removed with the contributing support of Harris County Precinct Three. The Boy Scouts contributed their time and energy to help meet requirements toward achieving their Eagle Scout rank. Congratulations to Troop 1919, Harris County Precinct Three and the Bayou Preservation Association for your concerted efforts.
