Port Houston proudly partnered up with the Galveston Bay Foundation to host one of the sites for the Texas General Land Office''s Adopt-A-Beach event this weekend at Morgan''s Point. The event had a great turnout, as over 100 community volunteers, including Port Houston employees, came together to clean up over 4,500 lbs of trash and recyclables along a half a mile stretch of Texas shoreline. Port Houston''s environmental department helped supply the additional trash and recycling bins needed for the collection effort. This year''s event was especially important due to the recent damage and flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey. A special thanks to Texas GLO and Galveston Bay Foundation for all their hard work and focused efforts to raise public awareness, educate citizens about the source of debris and keeping Texas beaches clean and safe. In addition to the cleanup efforts, all aluminum cans collected during the event were donated to Cans for Canines, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness and funds for service dogs. Thanks again to all of the organizations and volunteers who helped make this event a success! --- #houstonstrong #TexasProud #community #stewardship #volunteering #Houston #ports #channel @chriskuhlmanphotog @gbayfoundation @glotx

At today''s Port Commission meeting, architects from SWA Group, a landscape architecture, urban design and planning firm, provided displays of their visions for future Port Houston landscape throughout the Houston port region produced by their summer interns. SWA''s Summer Student Program is designed to further an understanding of the port''s relationship to the region and develop future creative and economically viable project proposals. The group toured the port earlier this year for the project, and were guided and supported by Chief Port Infrastructure Officer Rich Byrnes. Their goal was to connect the industrial landscape of the port with the community. Port Houston appreciates the hard work presented on this project! --- #infrastructure #landscape #Houston #ports #architecture #Texas #partnership @swagroup
