Bayou Land Conservancy (BLC) has been at the forefront of land preservation in the Houston region for more than 20 years. They have accomplished much since their first conservation easement was signed in 1996. As of today, they have protected nearly 14,000 acres of precious green space at 61 preserves in the Houston region. https://www.bayoulandconservancy.org/
Lands the BLC protect include the Spring Creek Greenway, the longest, connected, urban forested corridor in the nation. When finished, the Greenway will ultimately:
- Stretch over 40 miles,
- Reach from Highway 249 in Tomball east to US 59 in Kingwood, and
- Cover more than 12,000 acres.
The BLC also took a lead role in creating the Spring Creek Nature Trail, a 14-mile, natural-surface path that follows Spring Creek built largely by volunteers. It is open to hikers, bikers, birders, and other nature lovers. Experience the gentle meanders, wetland ponds, and abundant wildlife that Spring Creek has to offer on the Spring Creek Nature Trail. https://www.bayoulandconservancy.org/spring-creek-nature-trail
