Seabourne Creek Nature Park is one of our signature projects. It’s a great place to visit and observe the results of the many improvements we have made to this beautiful park.

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.
Throughout the ensuring years, we have expanded our efforts at the park. We have created a natural and environmentally productive wildlife habitat that allows park visitors to get close to nature. Our current efforts at the park include improvements to the following areas. Click on the link for more information.

SCNP’S 20 Year Vision
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).
