The City of Rosenberg City Council passed a resolution on June 23, 2009 that set aside 20 acres in Seabourne Creek Park for native prairie restoration. The Chapter was selected to propose and help implement a long-range prairie restoration project that will enhance the nature park for wildlife and public education and enjoyment.
In addition, the Chapter has been asked to provide a 20-year vision for the park; recommend native trees and other plants, including species and locations; create and implement a fish stocking plan; develop and deliver seminars and outreach programs at the Rosenberg Civic Center and the park; provide advice regarding irrigation needs; recommend walkways, in terms of locations and materials; create educational signage; and act as coordinator and liaison for other volunteer organizations’ contributions to the park (e.g. Eagle Scout projects, youth groups, Master Gardener projects).

Seabourne Scrapbook (PDF) – This little scrapbook was put together in July 2010 by Cheryl Sedivec and other Coastal Prairie Master Naturalists to tell “A Story of Restoration” at Seabourne Creek Park; it discusses the park’s history, CPCs plans, and activities to date.
