Who We Are
Urban Wild is a group of young professionals actively supporting the work of Memorial Park Conservancy through membership and service. In return, Urban Wild members are exposed to various professional networks, as well as opportunities to learn more about, and advocate for, a treasured Houston greenspace.
Urban Wild members enjoy bimonthly happy hours both in Memorial Park and around Houston, a discount to attend Bridge Bash and an opportunity to join the planning committee, and volunteer opportunities throughout the year. This is membership with a mission and is open to ages 21 and up interested in building a deeper relationship with Memorial Park.
We invite you and your friends to join other community-driven young Houstonians as we help restore, preserve and enhance Memorial Park for generations to come.
