Come learn about plans for the Houston Botanic Garden!
Claudia Gee Vassar, interim executive director of the Houston Botanic Garden will speak about plans for the garden, which will be developed on a 120-acre site located on Sims Bayou in the Glenbrook area of Houston.
Claudia is a native Houstonian and Rice graduate who earned a law degree from the University of Virginia. After practicing real estate and corporate law for a decade, Claudia decided to make a career change and began working with Houston nonprofits to help guide them through periods of transition and growth. She served as Interim Executive Director for SIRE, Inc., EMERGE Fellowship, and ArtBridge, and completed consulting projects for local organizations including the Kinder Institute for Urban Research at Rice University, Young Audiences of Houston, and Main Street Ministries. Claudia is excited to be working intimately with her first green organization and has enjoyed the camaraderie and collaboration to help people enjoy the outdoors and inspire them to be good environmental stewards.
