We Protect More Than Wildlife, We Protect People.

Houston is one of the fastest-growing, most dynamic cities in the United States.  Now boasting 2.2 million residents and encompassing 630 square miles, the city continues to grow to the west and northwest where land is available.  This land, called the Katy Prairie, is critical to wildlife and to people. 

In addition to creating habitat for wildlife, the prairie-wetlands, ranches, creeks, and other green spaces on the prairie slow water heading downstream towards Houston, providing time for floodwaters to recede. As these prairie lands shrink, so does the ability to protect downstream citizens.  This is why KPC is working with others to protect these lands.  In addition, we are working with others on programs that will help alleviate future downstream flooding.  

We believe in safeguarding wildlife.  We believe in fostering a healthy community.  We believe in Houston.
