Review from Guidestar
take our family here ( Little Cypress Creek Preserve) to bike and hike all the time. We love it, the trails are not too difficult to children to bike and you can see tonnes of neat things, great learning environment. Also have taken one of daughters troops there and planted trees with one of the preserve staff- awesome experience- especially for city kids who need to get outside more.
Thanks for the opportunity and work you do. We all need to spend more time in places like this!!!
tears are in my eyes, I woke up this morning, and looked at a paper I grabbed yesterday only to see the, that the deerpark bayou was in doubt of being lost, only the paper is over 10 days old. I immediately went to your site to see the outcome and see its saved!! THANKYOU, thanks for fighting for this, YOU DID IT!!!!!
I am currently doing an internship at Bayou Land Conservancy and I have never seen an organization that works diligently to preserve Houston area land and watersheds. Before I started my internship, I only used to worry so much about the consequence of erosion that I would have planted Chinese tallow without knowing the side effect. But now, I am learning a lot from a very knowledgeable staff on how to sensibly preserve green species for the future generation. It’s a blessing to have an organization with high devotion to create environmental awareness.
I started an internship at Bayou Land Conservancy this summer, and the quality of the staff and volunteers' restoration work and dedication to preserving the land and waterways is amazing. The staff is extremely knowledgeable about the land and the local wildlife and spend a lot of time and effort making sure the native species and habitats are well protected. We visited the Little Cypress Creek Preserve a couple of weeks ago and had a great time hiking and learning about the local species of insects, birds, and trees. The dedication and the quality of work at this organization is really impressive.
I found it stimulating & heartwarming finding out how my little neighbors the beavers died. Caught in traps near their homes & the yards they cleared of brush, weeds & soft wood trees. They made it so easy to find the paper & other trash washed down the creek banks. The children of my friends & relatives who often came to enjoy the playful antics of the beaver "pups" will no longer see the bever families or enjoy the walks & listen to the slapping sounds of play in the slowly moving waters in the new "Greenway along Spring Creek".
It makes a lasting impression & lesson, of MAN in his infinate wisdom, playing GOD, on young people & I suppose it is a good history lesson on our youth who will take this all over someday. You can bet that the old timers who used to swim this creek & young men who roamed the creekbanks of Spring Creek appreciate the elemination of this element of the Greenway. Maybe some of the sponsors of Bayou Land Conservancy need to know how the selection process goes regarding park inhabitants.
Seems to me the persons of Spring Trails HOA, should resign in shame before the membership finds out what they have been doing with HOA funds & OUR resources, but I'm sure they are to full of themselves to do that.
Pct.3 Commish. James Noack sure didn't put up much of a fight when he found out how the extermination of our little park residents were murdered. The folks of Spring Creek Greenway Nature Center at least got off their duffs & notified somebody. Maybe some people on the Harris Co. side will care more about our little park residents. I
I recently visited the Little Cypress Creek area on a class field trip from Waltrip High School and the Bayou Land Conservancy members were very nice and allowed me to gather knowledge on the subject. It was a lot of fun and i learned about a variety of fields such as invasive species, ecology, and ways to determine water quality.
Our school brought 5th graders to the conservancy and it was an awesome experience. Thank you so much for promoting science and the enviornment! The whole trip was also fun and engaging. Thanks:)
The concervancy was awesome! Many of our students had never been in on an outdoor adventure. They loved it! Our Group leaders were very knowledgeable and had un ending patience with the students. I grew up in the country, and still learned new things! Thank you for having us!
