Today, our President and CEO Mary Anne Piacentini was awarded the Terry Hershey Bayou Stewardship Award. This is given to an individual who has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to celebrating, protecting, and restoring the natural richness of all our bayous and streams. Congratulations Mary Anne!
Yesterday we broke ground on a new wetland project that will become important habitat for migratory waterfowl and other wildlife, as well as to help hold and slow floodwaters. A huge thank you to Ducks Unlimited and the Newfield Foundation. We couldn't do it without you!

We spent yesterday in the sunshine planting a new pocket prairie for the students at Memorial Parkway Elementary. A big thank you to @SnoozeAMEatery and all of you who ate pancakes on Pancake Day 2018. KPC is pleased to partner with others to create pocket prairies like this one - vibrant spaces filled with native plants that attract wildlife and help pollinators.
