Many of us are simply satisfied to know these areas and opportunities exist, though we have not experienced them ourselves.
We work for people and communities, and know that we can all prosper and grow through our connection to wilderness. We are educators in search of opportunities to expand knowledge and instill an ethic.
We are benefactors and stewards of a rich natural history. We are future generations who will enjoy and benefit from the wilderness as those who came before us did. We are a mesmerizing skyline set before the flight path of a thousand migrating geese.
We are Houston Wilderness. It's our nature.
ABOUT HOUSTON WILDERNESS
We are Houston Wilderness, a bridge between a dynamic, growing city and the wetlands, forests, prairies and river systems that sustain us as individuals and communities.
We recognize that quality of life and wilderness are bound to one another. To ensure we will always have these natural resources, we strive to share the beauty and create awareness of what has been generously loaned to us.
We spend our weekends hiking in ancient pine forests, canoeing winding bayous, or watching colorful songbirds on their migration route. You will find us wading the shorelines in search of redfish and flounder or hunting white-tailed deer and green-winged teal.
