The Spring Creek Greenway will connect and protect up to 12,000 acres of forest on both sides of the Creek because of the joint effort of Harris & Montgomery County. These words are on the website describing this new ecological gem. "The forests along Spring Creek look nearly the same as they looked over 200 years ago when Akokisa Indians roamed the land, hunting and gathering their food as they traveled this gorgeous spring-fed waterway." The newest village of The Woodlands borders on this project and new home buyers love the natural feel of this community. Preserving our urban forests improves every aspect of Houstonians quality of life. The Spring Creek watershed currently contains tens of thousands of acres of bottomland hardwood forest, providing home to wildlife, creating recreation opportunities, reducing flooding, and improving air quality. Wow, forests do all of that?! We better hold onto them!
