Port Houston staff participated at Buffalo Bayou Partnership’s “KBR Kids Day” event at Guadeloupe Plaza Park Oct. 7.

As one of the founding partners of the Partnership's "Clean and Green Program,” Port Houston was at the event celebrating the 10th anniversary of these special bayou clean-up efforts.

The "Clean and Green" year-round program was designed to eliminate trash from Houston's historic Buffalo Bayou, including where it meets the Port of Houston, one of the world's most dynamic seaports.

KBR Kids Day is one of the Partnership’s signature events with thousands of children and families attending every year. Guests enjoyed activity stations, entertainment, food and games. Port Houston had a model display of the Houston Ship Channel for visitors to engage with throughout the morning.

“This is a fun learning experience for the kids. We had a great time visiting with the community, educating them about the Houston Ship Channel and the history and significance of this Texas waterway,” said Trae Camble, environmental compliance coordinator at Port Houston.
