The first episode was broadcast Tuesday, Nov. 13, and featured geologist, river guide, naturalist, and Save Buffalo Bayou board member Tom Helm.
You can watch that first episode here and the second episode here. The next episode airs Tuesday, Nov. 27, at 6 a.m. and the final episode on Dec. 4. All the episodes will be available online.
But you don’t have to be a television reporter to float down Buffalo Bayou learning from Tom Helm.
Helm offers geology classes on the bayou. Find out more about the ancient history of this 18,000-year-old bayou, where it comes from, where it’s going, and why understanding the natural function of a dynamic river is important for effective flood risk reduction. Houston has rocks, and they are hundreds of thousands of years old!
In addition Helm offers a Happy Hour Bat Trip with refreshments on Buffalo Bayou in Buffalo Bayou Park.
