(Bio)Diversity Bonds

2023 Houston, Texas

As a hybrid art exhibit and guided nature walk with the Houston Arboretum, (Bio)Diversity Bonds empowers Houstonians to meet, celebrate, and ultimately support the many threatened local, native bee species that built and continually maintain the unique coastal prairie ecosystems that cradle our city, its people, and our astounding (bio)diversity.

Join us on Saturday, May 20th for a walk through the Houston Arboretum, led by ecologist Chris Garza, who will help us to see, identify, and learn about Houston's incredible native bee population. These guided nature walks are free and open to the public, but registration is required, so be sure to sign up here

Outdoor art exhibition    
May 20th–Jun 4th, 2023

As this event is entirely outdoors and will take place rain or shine, please dress appropriately. Each session will meet in the courtyard between the Conservation Center and the Nature Center, and will last roughly and hour and a half. The community walks will also inaugurate an accompanying photography exhibition throughout the Houston Arboretum, which features pollinator portraits made by artist & visual researcher Jake Eshelman, who will also co-host both Community Pollinator Walks. You can learn more about (Bio)Diversity Bonds via instagram—and please feel free to share the event!

The walk and outdoor exhibit are both free and open to the public. (Bio)Diversity Bonds is funded jointly by the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance and by The Idea Fund—a re-granting program administered by DiverseWorks, Aurora Picture Show, and Project Row Houses and funded by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
