Bayou Preservation Group Offers a Surprisingly Simple Way to Reduce Landfill, Waterway Waste

Reclaimed BaYOU

HOUSTON’S BAYOUS ARE finally being treated like the nature-filled gems that they are, and one local organization wants to ensure that future generations get to enjoy the waterways.

The Bayou Preservation Association celebrated the opening of its first permanent collection bin for its Pots for Plots program, which encourages the recycling of single-use plastic plant pots and helps ensure that they don’t end up in landfills and bayous.

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.

SPOTLIGHT

LINDSEY KONE

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.
