Our mission is to celebrate, protect and restore the natural richness of all our bayous and streams.


Our vision is a network of healthy bayous, streams and watersheds.

Our Values

Using science and action, Bayou Preservation Association works with communities to celebrate and protect the Bayous of greater Houston. We advocate for Nature and Nature-Based Solutions to balance growth and preservation and to advance equitable access, benefiting all who live within the Lower Galveston Bay watershed.


Bayou Preservation Association advocates for urban development that weaves nature and nature-based solutions into the built environment to promote regional resilience, report on and monitor water quality in collaboration with local jurisdictions, and develop educational tools for communities and stewards. Through a collaborative approach, we bring together scientists, engineers, educators, advocates, and resident stewards to Celebrate, Protect, and Restore Houston Bayous.
