Bayou City Waterkeeper - Clean Water, Wetland Protection, Flood & Climate Resiliency

We work in Houston - the Bayou City - and across the Lower Galveston Bay watershed, which stretches from Lake Conroe down to Galveston Bay and encompasses wetlands, prairies, bayous - and our homes. As we work to protect water quality, preserve and restore wetlands, and support resilient communities, our work brings together the communities and ecosystems that make this region special. People and nature are at the heart of our work; there can be no conservation without environmental justice; nature-based solutions to flooding demand equity.


Protecting Wetlands

We aim to preserve and protect our wetlands that provide natural protection in our communities and critical habitat for a multitude of species.

Just Climate Transitions

Bayou City Waterkeeper believes all our communities, whether in Houston’s urban core or along our beautiful stretch of the Gulf Coast, deserve the promise of a resilient and healthy environment for generations to come.

Clean Water

We work to protect and restore the integrity of our bayous, rivers, and streams that flow into our coastal bays by holding polluters accountable.

Join Us

Bayou City Waterkeeper seeks to protect and restore the integrity of our bayous, rivers, streams, and bays through advocacy, education, and action. We seek to make our waterways fishable, swimmable, and drinkable for all.
