Urban Ecology along Buffalo Bayou

In conjunction with the Houses on the Bayou architecture tour, Buffalo Bayou Partnership has organized a canoe trip along the same stretch of the bayou that the tour featured.

The trip addresses the dynamic river and riparian ecology and geology as well as the history of attempts of flood control and erosion along the bayou. Canoeists will study various preservation and conservation efforts on the bayou corridor. Don A. Greene will be your guide. His knowledge and experience include past president and chair of the Bayou Preservation Association. He currently teaches earth science to Kinkaid and HISD schools and serves on the rivers advisory board for Texas Parks and Wildlife.

All canoe trips are guided by National Parks outfitter Don A. Greene of Whitewater Experience. Don is an award-winning National Park Service outfitter with over 30 years of experience working in Houston to preserve Buffalo Bayou.

All trips include canoe rental, paddles, shuttles, personal flotation devices and snacks. Under normal water conditions, only minimal experience or skill is necessary to enjoy these floats.

All canoe trips leave from 5000 Memorial Drive.
Reservations and payment must be made in advance. Cancellations must take place 72 hours prior to the canoe tour.
