Bayou Preservation's Year-End Letter
From Our President & CEO, Brittani Flowers, MUEP
As the year comes to an end, we wanted to share with you the progress and achievements we've made in protecting and nurturing our bayous and the communities they support. It's been a year of progress, hope, meaningful change — and we couldn't have done it without you. Thank you for your unwavering support and dedication to our mission of protecting the natural resources of Houston.
Meet the creator of our Pots for Plots program, Morton Sager!
Morton is our Project Coordinator here at Bayou Preservation Association, and an all-around interesting guy. He likes green initiatives and long walks on the beach. Our partners at Small Places Finca Tres Robels Farm had the chance to get to know him a little better — Now you can too!
We'd like to introduce our newest member of the team, Lindsey Kone!
Lindsey joined Bayou Preservation Association as our Outreach and Special Events Manager in August of 2023. After a detour in her place of birth Gainesville, Florida, she quickly embraced her identity as a native Houstonian. She attended UCLA where she received a B.A. in Studio Art and a B.A. in French Language, Literature and Culture.
In her previous life, Lindsey worked at an award-winning fine dining establishment as an event manager, and later as manager of the restaurant. She oversaw multiple contracted events along with 350+ other dinner guests each night, while creating meaningful experiences for every one of them. Her job required getting to know people from all walks of life — that was her favorite part.
Amid her diverse interests, Lindsey is most drawn to those that speak to the human condition. You can find her exploring the Houston parks system with her dog, to whom she faithfully serves as Emotional Support Person. In her free time, she likes to stop and smell the roses.

JONATHAN PAUL JACKSON
Bayou Preservation Association's first Artist Mixer and Auction at Foltz Fine Art Gallery was a joyous and magnificent gathering!
The one-night-only event featuring nature-inspired work by Houston artist Jonathan Paul Jackson was held on Thursday, December 8th, from 6 pm - 8 pm. It was a beautiful union of art lovers and bayou aficionados sharing their appreciation for art and the bayous.
As a part of the Challenger Seven Memorial Park restoration project, Bayou Preservation has recognized the need to educate park users on the importance of riparian habits. To that end, Bayou Preservation teamed up with local artist Sara Welch to create engaging interpretative signage.
