The Bayou Preservation Association, a Houston-area nonprofit dedicated to the education and preservation of the region's bayous, is holding its 19th annual symposium virtually Sept. 28-29.

The theme of the event, “The Cost of Doing Nothing—Opting for Resilience,” will focus on the building of “resilient, sustainable communities,” according to outreach and engagement manager for the BPA, Ryan Francisco.

Part of the two-day symposium will focus on an “action agenda,” covering the ways residents can become involved in regional resilience to climate-related changes to the bayous.
