The City of Houston Parks and Recreation Department’s Natural Resources Management Program is responsible for managing the undeveloped land within city parks, which covers approximately 16,000 acres. The department is currently working to restore five prairie sites across the city in multi-phased projects. The prairie restoration projects help the department reach a broader goal of increasing green infrastructure within parks for the purpose of mitigating flooding, improving air and water quality, reducing erosion, creating wildlife habitat, and establishing areas for passive recreation. The discussion will focus on the ways that the department manages these areas and specific challenges that urban restoration sites present.
