What is this place called Houston? And, how can our connection to this place sustain us now and after the pandemic? The COVID-19 pandemic has led many Houstonians to spend more time than ever enjoying nature, through their windows, from their balconies and patios, in their backyards, and venturing out for socially-distanced neighborhood walks. Environmental lawyer, Rice University professor in the practice and poet Jim Blackburn invites you to experience Houston’s nature with new eyes. Learn about Gulf Coast ecology, how our bayou system works, and how this place has shaped our identity and our future possibilities as a city.
