Give the Gift of Membership
A Memorial Park Conservancy Membership is a remarkable alternative to fighting holiday traffic, long lines and the fear of empty shelves. In addition to funding Conservancy programs that enhance and preserve the park, each MPC gift membership provides an opportunity to make special memories in Memorial Park.
Members receive our monthly e-newsletter, HAPPENINGS IN THE PARK, special Members Update of the Memorial Park Conservation Master Plan, invitations to special volunteer events and park programs, as well as a MPC Member static window decal.
Call us at 713-863-8403 or click here for more information.

Thank you to our volunteers from Houston Parks and Recreation Department, YES College Prep, Bellaire High School, Westbury High School and neighbors from Crestwood Garden Club who helped us on the morning of December 2, 2006 to improve the natural habitat for Memorial Park’s indigenous birds. It was a massive undertaking—clearing trash, trees and other invasive plants. Thanks again for cooperating on this important ongoing task!

Prepare the Park for the Trail Riders
February 10 and 17, 2007
Help us prepare Memorial Park in welcome for thousands of trail riders headed into town for the 75th Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. We will start by marking off the boundaries of the campgrounds for these weary travelers for the duration of the Rodeo.
Watch for more information in the near future to participate in this momentous Houston tradition.
As we enter 2007, watch for new and exciting ways to make your mark in Memorial Park.
