The City of League City is proud to partner with Eagle Scout and Girl Scout candidates who are looking to complete their mandatory projects in the community. We are looking to have projects that are different and unique, assist with nature and the environment, and offer some art aspects as well. Some examples of projects that have been completed like this in the past are as follows:
Dr. Ned and Fay Dudney Clear Creek Nature Center
The Clear Creek Nature Center has a project that started back in the fall of 2019. An 11-acre section of the park is undergoing a transformation back to its original Coastal Prairie habitat. Previously the 11 acres were overgrown with Chinese Tallow and Trifoliate Orange trees. These 2 invasive species can take over native plant habitats and choke them out. Once this happens they can negatively transform an area in a short amount of time. Over the past 4 years, the City of League City’s Parks Staff and other government agencies have been working together to bring the former prairie back to life. The Galveston Bay Foundation has partnered with the City to provide over 500 prairie plants, and Texas Parks and Wildlife and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have provided expertise on future steps for the project.
Dick Benoit Prairie Preserve
The Dick Benoit Prairie Preserve is another park that is undergoing a transformation. City of League City Staff and the Galveston Bay Area Chapter of Texas Master Naturalists have been working together to clear the site of invasive species. Several workdays have been held to remove Chinese Tallow trees and other invasives from the property. Master Naturalists have also been working on plant identification and creating a Master Plant List of all species. In late 2022, the Dick Benoit Prairie Preserve was selected as a Registered Native Texas Prairie by the Native Prairies Association of Texas.
