Stormwater wetland planting day at Exploration Green

June 25, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Saturday, June 18 and Saturday, June 25 from 9 am to noon, adults and kids ages 12 and up are invited to help plant a stormwater wetland for the new lake at Exploration Green. The Texas Coastal Watershed Program will coordinate the installation of native wetlands plants cultivated in the on-site nursery at Exploration Green. Enter the park at the bridge at 1800 Reseda. Tools will be provided and volunteers should be prepared to get wet and dirty!

Located on 200 acres of natural beauty, Exploration Green will feature a series of five connected finger lakes, 12 miles of hike-and-bike trails, safe play areas, multi-use athletic fields and inspiring gathering spaces. Complementing these amenities will be water-cleansing stormwater wetland areas; habitat islands for indigenous wildlife, including resident and migrating birds, amphibians and butterflies; and a reforested, more natural environment for native grasses, flowers and trees.
