Nov. 17, 2018
KHOU television (Channel 11) is airing a four-part series on the hidden wilderness of Buffalo Bayou in Houston. Thank you, KHOU. Titled “Brandi on the Bayou: Buffalo Bayou’s Hidden Wilderness,” the series is reported by KHOU’s Brandi Smith and airs Tuesday mornings at 6 a.m.
The first episode was broadcast Tuesday, Nov. 13, and featured geologist, river guide, naturalist, and Save Buffalo Bayou board member Tom Helm.
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.
