Thank you to all Veterans for your service. Some of the land that is currently Memorial Park was once the site of Camp Logan, a WWI U.S. Army training camp, the historical remnants of which can still be found in parts of the Park. This map shows an overlay of Camp Logan on top of the current Park (zoom in for details). Memorial Park was so named in dedication to the soldiers who trained here and fought and died in WWI. This Veterans Day is also notable as the centennial of Armistice Day, November 11, 1918. A large version of this map along with some historical photos are available to view in the Cullen Running Trails Center. To learn more about the military history of the Park, please join our Veterans Day Ceremony tomorrow morning (11.12). ... See MoreSee Less

Welcome bird species #174! Two staff members were lucky to spot a new bird at the Meadow this Tuesday: a LeConte’s Sparrow. This beautifully camouflaged grassland bird spends the winter in tallgrass prairies along the Gulf Coast. Like many prairie birds, their population has declined sharply in recent years (by 73% since 1966) due to habitat loss. We are thrilled that vulnerable birds like the LeConte’s Sparrow are visiting our prairie – it means that our habitat restoration is working! #BeakOfTheWeek

For the past few weeks we have been flooded with migrating Indigo Buntings here at the Arboretum. One of our staff snapped this awesome photo of a pair in our butterfly garden. Both males and females are brown right now, but look closely at the bird on the left – can you see the blue? After the breeding season, males grow new feathers that are blue with wide, brown edges. Over the winter the brown edges gradually wear away, so by springtime the males appear fully indigo (like this handsome fellow: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/62/Indigo_Bunting_by_Dan_Pancamo_4.jpg/799px-Indigo_Bunting_by_Dan_Pancamo_4.jpg). #BeakOfTheWeek

It’s #SweaterWeather along the bayou and we think Jaume Plensa’s Tolerance statues could use some clothes to keep warm in this cold front! 😉

Holiday Home Tour Scavenger Hunt: “When all through the house..can you find the mouse?”

Holiday Home Tour Co-Chairs Danielle Stewart and Karen Derr couldn’t have designed a more whimsical way to explore the homes this year with the addition of a scavenger hunt for a stuffed mouse stirring somewhere through each house. Tourgoers will spot the mouse, snap a photo, and email it to holidaytour@houstonheights.org to qualify for prizes from area shops including Jubilee, Mary and Moss, and Big Blue Whale.

To purchase tickets to the Holiday Home Tour, please visit: stores.houstonheightsstore.org/2018-holiday-home-tour-advance-ticket/
