Memorial Park Conservancy field staff collect the seeds from native plants throughout the Park in order to propagate them in the Conservancy greenhouse. The goal of growing these native plants from the seeds is to eventually plant them back in the Park once ready, thus expanding the number of native plants in Memorial Park. Once plants go to seed, the staff will collect no more than 25% of the seeds for greenhouse propagation and leave the rest in place for natural seeding in their location. ... See MoreSee Less

Returned today for 1st walk on Seymour Lieberman Exer-trail. Great new curves along Memorial Drive. Check it out.

I am so thankful for the free service that you provide to the Houston community. Every time I've seen the park it has been beautifully maintained, which I know comes at a cost to someone during times like these. Thanks to all of you for everything that you do for all of us Houstonians!

Highly recommend the paid Eastern Glades parking. No traffic jams!

In 1917, The United States entered the First World War, and the War Department leased 7,600 acres of forested land on Buffalo Bayou to establish a training base named Camp Logan.  Just seven years later in 1924, the Hogg family purchased approximately 1,500 acres of the former Camp Logan land and sold the acreage to the City of Houston at cost. In May of the same year, the park was officially established as Memorial Park in memory of the soldiers who trained there, of which nearly 1,000 lost their lives.

Today and every day we are thankful for these soldiers and all who have sacrificed their lives in the line of duty for our country. Thank you for your service.
Here’s some helpful tips before visiting Memorial Park for Memorial Day weekend:
 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
☀️ Bring your new essentials: a face covering and hand sanitizer.
☀️ Have a plan B. If the Park is crowded, try somewhere else.
☀️ Know where to park. Picnic Loop will remain open. The southside baseball field parking lot will be closed.
☀️ Dont forget to lock your car and take your valuables.
☀️ Leave no trace. If your picnicking or enjoying your time outdoors, take your garbage with you.
☀️ Practice social distancing. Only come with your household and give others space.

June is the start of our “summer slow-down” of bird activity at the Arboretum, but there are still great birds to spot! We’ve been seeing one of our favorite summer visitors this week, the Green Heron. These tiny waders stalk the shores of our ponds, especially the Swamp and Arrowwood Ponds. We love watching them hunt; normally they are hunched over, but when they strike they extend their shockingly long necks and look like a Jack-in-the-box toy! Be sure to check out the second photo to see an example. #BeakOfTheWeek #WildlifeWednesday

This week we’re going to share a little love for one of our most underappreciated birds: the Black Vulture. We’ve been seeing flocks of them soaring over the Arboretum on hot afternoons. Black Vultures are extremely social and live in extended family groups. Pairs mate for life and continue to feed their offspring for almost a year after they leave the nest. When the young are independent, they may return to join their parents’ flock along with their older siblings, aunts and uncles, and even grandparents. They all cooperate to find food and often preen one another’s feathers. #BeakOfTheWeek #WildlifeWednesday

Buffalo Bayou Partnership

As Buffalo Bayou Partnership moves our efforts eastward along Buffalo Bayou, we want to celebrate the history of Buffalo Bayou’s east sector and the rich cultural heritage and traditions of the East End and Fifth Ward neighborhoods.

In 2019, Tejas Got Soul, an afternoon of music and storytelling, celebrated the history of “brown-eyed” soul and its rise in Houston’s East End. The event focused on veteran musicians from the 1950s to the 1970s who worked alongside hit makers such as Sunny and the Sunliners and Richie Valens. Tejas Got Soul set out to promote the music’s little known history by recording these early musicians’ stories and presenting them in collaboration with younger East End musicians who have long admired their contributions.

Tejas Got Soul 2, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, will mine the legacies of Tejano, Conjunto, Norteno and Cumbia musics that find their home in the East End and other parts of Houston. First up, will be Marky Lee who cut his musical teeth playing with the Mystics in 1964. He and his band would perform live on Saturday mornings at the legendary KLVL, the city’s first bilingual radio station, housed in the historic Morales Radio Hall, still located in the East End’s Second Ward. Stay tuned for a preview of Tejas Got Soul 2 as Marky Lee performs favorite tunes on Buffalo Bayou Partnership Instagram and Facebook.

Buffalo Bayou Partnership is presenting Tejas Got Soul 2 in cooperation with the East End Foundation.

I agree

Enough is enough

What about the lives and livelihoods of black shop owners who have been burned and looted? Obviously not all black lives matter.

BLACK LIVES MATTER

Responsible for 50% of all murders in the USA.

The black lives matter movement will benefit all lives because it's goal is to create reform to stop police brutality. The movement was started when 18 yr old black male Michael Brown was shot and killed while having his hands up. He told the cop "don't shoot" as he was being shot at. That is why you hear the chant "hands up don't shoot" at protests. The black lives matter movement is telling cops that black lives matter too, it is not saying only black lives matter. All lives matter, but to some of these cops it does not. We need to stand in solidarity with the black lives matter movement so that we can end police brutality and prevent murders like George Floyd and countless others at the hands of cops who abuse their authority or use excessive force.✊

Its about the new world order, which is failing miserably btw, dividing you people so it creates so much chaos that you will give up your rights. They already have all of you mind poisoned with their lab created sugars that make you docile and have mental delays in responses. Now they are torturing Americans with fake viruses and riots. It's so easy for them to do. All this and more aimed to directly break down your immune systems. Imbalance hormones and create mental illnesses.

Such a beautiful tribute..! Let’s continue to spread the love and never forget this day..! ❤️🙋🏽‍♂️✊🏾

God of heaven and earth, you created the human family and endowed each person with great dignity. Help us, we ask you, to overcome the sin of racism. Grant us your grace to eliminate this plague from our hearts, our communities, our social and civil institutions. Fill our hearts with love for you and our neighbor so we can work with you in healing our country of racial injustice. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever

We just glossing over the fact that he pointed a gun at a (black) pregnant woman's belly as 5 of his friends robed her house? 🤷🏻‍♂️ Don't get me wrong, his death is unjustifiable, but a stand up citizen he was not.

I love this post 🚀🛰️🌌🙌👑

Beautiful mural. God bless him.

Rest in everlasting peace, you were taken away too soon💔

R.I.P sir and God bless you and your family❤

Really a nice memorial for him! May he rest in peace.

A mother son team( Alex Roman and mom),street muralists, did that in one night!!

Nice!! Say his name!!! George Floyd!!! RIP!

Rip god bless his soul

Rest in peace George Floyd

Great Mural🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

Rest in Peace 🙏

God be with his family. God be with Us.

Rest In Peace.

Beautifully done

Say his name: GEORGE FLOYD!

Nice rip George

Beautiful

Beautiful

I love this

It's very pretty. But why does it have to say Ghetto on his hoodie? Is there a deeper meaning?

What is the reason for the word "GHETTO " on his shirt ?

Awesome

Congratulations to Andrew and Stephanie Lienhard at 802 Ralfallen Street for being our June Yard of the Month Receipients!

The community garden at 802 Ralfallen Street was started in 2009 from a simple need to relocate some soil from the backyard. As the years passed, the gardens were expanded to serve as an herb and vegetable garden for many of the residents on surrounding streets. Last year, Andrew and Stephanie Lienhard added a pollinator garden and two more raised community garden beds to the front easement of Ralfallen. The gardens have always functioned as a wonderful meeting point for all of the neighbors and as an impromptu biology lesson for many of the children who check daily for Monarch caterpillars, butterflies and chrysalis hiding among the flowers.

Inside the front gate, you will find a shade garden filled with rocky pathways lined with pentas, begonias, foxtail ferns and impatiens. There is also a succulent and cactus garden outside the fence facing Beverly Street.

The Lienhards have lived on Ralfallen since 2006 and consider their gardens an ever-evolving project. They love sharing their garden and see the project as a way to build a strong community.

We would like to thank Joshua's Native Plants for the very nice gift certificate awarded to our June Yard of the Month recipients.
