Houston Botanic Gardens Coming

Glenbrook Golf Course off I-45 South is being re-imagined at the new Houston Botanic Garden. This is how their website describes the new site: Houston, sitting in one of the most ecologically diverse urban areas of the country, is one of only two major U.S. cities without a botanic garden. In the Garden, the splendor of Houston’s biodiversity will be explored and enjoyed in a beautiful and serene setting. Houston Botanic Garden will provide outstanding displays and programs, serve as a model for sustainability, and inspire all who visit to become environmental stewards as they learn more about plants and the vast natural world. The Garden will be an oasis of great beauty allowing for contemplation, learning, inspiration, and research.

There is also an excellent article in the Houston Chronicle by Molly Glentzer.
