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.

While we have this storm-related work, we also have our routine tasks to ensure that Buffalo Bayou Park’s perennial gardens and meadow areas remain beautiful.  Weeding and mulching are just two of the volunteer needs that we have.  And we would love to find gardening volunteers who can continue working with us on a regular basis throughout the year.

To learn more about Buffalo Bayou volunteering opportunities, please contact  Leticia Sierras at volunteer@buffalobayou.org or 713.752.0314 ext. 206. Volunteer waiver below.

Together, we will make Buffalo Bayou #HoustonStrong.


Please submit two business days in advance to ensure requested volunteer day and time. Anyone under the age of 18 will need to bring the waiver below signed by a parent/guardian.
