Earth Day Invasive Plant Blitz

Join us for an Earth Day invasive plant removal extravaganza at Camp Bayou Nature Preserve!

Help keep this beautiful preserve and the plants and wildlife who live here happy and healthy by removing their non-native invasive foes. We'll separate into small groups to minimize contact and explore this beautiful preserve while helping it thrive.
