Chapter Meeting: “History and Ecology of the Free Brazos, Waco to the Gulf” by Bruce Bodson

December 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Bruce Bodson

Bruce Bodson will discuss the Free Brazos River on Thursday, December 2, 2021

The Free Brazos is one of the longest undammed river segments in Texas.  From below Brazos River Lake in Waco, to the mouth of the river at Freeport, the Brazos flows over 425 miles with no further man made impediments.  Over much of this distance, the Free Brazos is the closest thing to true wilderness that exists.

Despite being a public water, the Free Brazos is one of the least utilized and least known rivers in the state.  Many people who live within the leveed floodplain of the river are unaware of its presence, or if they are aware, are afraid of it. Yet, for those of us who know and appreciate the river it is an amazing place, full of ecological diversity and historical significance.

Let’s explore the Free Brazos and learn a bit about this wilderness corridor in our neighborhood and how you can visit and help keep it free and accessible.

Bruce Bodson is an attorney in private environmental practice.  He has over 40 years of environmental experience as a scientist, consultant, attorney and academic.
