Overview of Need
White Oak Parkway is a public park that is located off of the White Oak Bayou that is an offshoot of the Buffalo Bayou. It is close to the heart of downtown Houston at the intersection of I-45 and I-10. Sadly, White Oak Parkway was significantly affected by Harvey. The water reached a level so high that the trees planted within recent years by the Student Conservation Association (SCA) were completely lost. There are massive amounts of litter in the park brought in by the ﬂoodwaters and the greenspace was left trampled by Hurricane’s waters.
Volunteers in partnership with the Houston Parks and Recreation Department will help bring the park back to it’s beautiful, natural state. Teams will help with litter and debris removal, invasive plant removal, habitat restoration and plantings.
Long Term Restoration
This is a part of a larger recovery effort supported by SCA. Our youth conservation leaders will work side by side with the Houston Parks team over the course of the next 12 weeks to restore bridges that were washed away, trail and habitat restoration, beach reinstatement, and restore cabins that were ﬂooded. We are committed to helping Houston rebuild.
