Habitat Work Days

  • When: Tuesdays*
  • Time: 9 – 11 a.m.
  • Where: NOA I Bldg, UHCL

There are many opportunities for you to get involved with EIH's WaterSmart Habitat. Whether you're looking for community service hours or just a change of pace, we have the perfect place for you right here on the UHCL campus. Habitat volunteers help weed and mulch flower beds, plant native plants, maintain pathways, and trim trees and bushes. Volunteers may also help clean out the pond on select work days.

  • No experience necessary—we'll show you what goes and what stays
  • Bring your own tools or use ours (we have gloves too)
  • Don't forget to bring a reusable water bottle, hat, and sunscreen!

Master Naturalists can earn volunteer time. Students, we will be happy to sign off on your community service hours!

Groups are Welcome!

Volunteering at EIH is a great way to get your organization involved in the community. Please call in advance if you have a large group or if you would like to schedule your group on a different day. For more information, contact: Wendy Reistle at 281-283-3045 or

*A few exceptions: We do not hold work days when the university is officially closed. Also, work days are canceled during inclement weather, though a light sprinkle or drizzle rarely keeps us out of the garden.
