Learn more about BBP through recordings of our first online presentation series

Last month, we launched our inaugural online series Deeper Dive with BBP. The three live webinars took a closer look at the history of Buffalo Bayou Partnership, upcoming plans along Houston’s historic waterway, and the thoughtful and engaging public art that enhances the visitor experience. Deeper Dive was hosted by BBP leaders including Anne Olson, President; Jose Solis, Project Manager; Karen Farber, Vice President of External Affairs; and Judy Nyquist, Board Member and Public Art and Programming Committee Co-Chair. We invite you to watch the recordings and dive deeper into BBP. Look out for more Deeper Dives coming soon!
