Since Houston’s founding, African Americans have had complex relationships to the land—some uplifting and celebratory, some rooted in oppression and injustice. Join The Nature Conservancy in Texas and partners for the Witness Series as we explore African American connections to nature through expert panels, hikes, art, and restoration events. This four-part series will take place at multiple locations and times in Houston from February to May 2022.
Witness: Seeds of Hope Planting is the third event in this four-part series. Join the Houston Parks and Recreation Department for an Earth Week prairie planting at Clinton Park. Additionally, we will explore some of the deep roots between our local prairies and legendary black cowboys and the rodeo.
