Healthy Creeks Initiative

UGRA is collaborating with the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department (TPWD) to combat invasive Arundo donax or giant cane along our waterways. This program, “Healthy Creeks Initiative” is a partnership with landowners to protect and improve water quality and habitat health along rivers and creeks in the headwaters of the Guadalupe River watershed.

As most land is privately owned, landowner support is important to the success of this initiative. This program is completely dependent on voluntary cooperation.  

This invasive cane is a widespread threat to water quality, but by working together we can help eradicate it from our Upper Guadalupe River watershed.
