Chapter Meeting July 6
Exploration Green Development Update
Exploration Green, the former Clear Lake City Golf Course, is now a 200-acre conservancy site devoted to flood control, hydrology, storm water wetland plant and native tree planting, and habitat restoration. Jerry Hamby, lead volunteer, will highlight the eight community planting events that occurred this spring, during which 230 trees and shrubs and 2,600 wetland plants were installed at the Phase 1 planting site. He will also talk about the park’s iNaturalist project and the updated timeline for implementation of the master plan.
Jerry has taught English and humanities at Lee College in Baytown for twenty-eight years. His work with the Honors Program has allowed him to integrate field trips to Sheldon Lake State Park and the Baytown Nature Center with classroom instruction. Since 2014 he has been a co-leader at the Exploration Green tree nursery, where he coordinates weekly maintenance and twice-monthly workday events. Jerry completed training for the Texas Master Naturalist program in Fall 2014 and was awarded his 500-service-hour milestone this spring. Jerry is a member of our very own Gulf Coast Chapter!
