Trees For Houston has announced plans for a new, permanent facility at the Kinder campus in Houston’s Garden Oaks neighborhood. The construction of the campus is expected to complete in 2022.
The new facility will have an onsite tree nursery, office space, and an education center on 1.5 acres. Trees for Houston’s ability to give more trees to constituents and deliver educational programming for both children and adults is expected to increase as a result of the shift.
The Kirksey Family Office Building, Bauer Education Center, and Chevron Tree Nursery will be located on the Kinder Campus.
Trees For Houston Initiative And Role Of The New Kinder Campus
Within the next five years, Trees for Houston hopes to boost distribution and planting to 100,000 trees. This initiative is critical to attaining the objective. The Kinder Campus will give Trees For Houston with the facilities it requires to better engage on-site volunteers and provide engaging educational opportunities for area school systems and community members through the Bauer Education Center, in addition to accommodating more trees. Trees For Houston is collaborating with Kirksey Architecture and Lauren Griffith Associates to bring these dreams to life.
Trees for Houston invites Houstonians to join the effort. A project of this scale would not be possible without the support of the Houston Community. Donations of any and every amount make a difference. Please consider donating today to help them reach their $8.8M goal.
