Hurricane Harvey had a significant impact all along Buffalo Bayou.  Our staff is working diligently and quickly to restore the waterway’s green spaces and trails.  But we need your help!  Volunteers are needed to pick up trash and debris, and shovel the enormous amounts of silt that Harvey left behind.  (Buffalo Bayou website)
