Kayaking for Kids
We are inspiring a new wave of environmental stewards through outdoor recreation and education on Greens Bayou. We lead groups of underserved, inner city youth on kayaking trips along Greens Bayou, introducing them to ecological concepts and the importance of stewarding natural resources – using the immediate waterway as an example.
Greens Bayou has the least amount of development and channelized banks compared to the other bayous in Houston. The students involved in our program live in highly urbanized settings and are not often exposed to undeveloped, wild landscapes such as the ones found along Greens Bayou. Many of the participating groups also lack access to niche outdoor activities such as a paddling or education about natural resource conservation. Our Kayaking for Kids program provides these opportunities and experiences.
