H-GAC San Bernard Watershed Project
Boat Trip November 16, 2009
L. to R: Ken Wright; Kim Northon; Justin Bower, Senior Environmental Planner, Houston-Galveston Area Council; Marilyn Shockley; Larry Vacek; Vanessa Taylor; Brian Koch, Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board; Aubin Phillips, Senior Environmental Planner, Houston-Galveston Area Council; Nelson Taylor
The strong north winds gusting on Monday didn't stop the representatives from the Houston-Galveston Area Council and the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board from touring the San Bernard River. This was their first boat trip on the San Bernard. They wanted to see the San Bernard first hand to assist them in the upcoming H-GAC watershed management project.
After a warm greeting and a quick breakfast at the Community Center, eleven F.O.R. members, plus guests, Justin Bower and Aubin Phillips from H-GAC and Brian Koch, Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board, set off for a day exploring the river. First stop was the Conoco-Phillips Spillway, north of Hwy 35 and then back down to the mouth of the river. F.O.R. members took turns pointing out various landmarks and telling the stories that went along with them.
Bowers, Phillips and Koch were impressed to see the outcome of the effort that opened the mouth of the river from beginning to end. Many photos were taken as reference for the on-going presentations of the San Bernard Watershed Project which will enhance the region's natural environment. 
 Kim & Dennis Northon provided their boat for the day-long trip.
