The recent flooding in Houston has reminded us that the city and its residents are subject to the effects of high water and flooding on Buffalo Bayou and other streams in Houston. From the earliest days of the city, Houstonians have had to deal with rainfall and the high water conditions it produces. This presentation will provide a historical perspective to those conditions. Visitors will gain an appreciation for why Houston is known as the “Bayou City.”Louis F. Aulbach is the author of a guide to the Buffalo Bayou in Houston, entitled Buffalo Bayou, An Echo of Houston’s Wilderness Beginnings. The book delves extensively into the local history along the city’s most famous stream. He is also the author of five bestselling guides to the rivers of West Texas. Aulbach, a native Houstonian, is a graduate of St. Thomas High School, Rice University and the University of Chicago. Louis Aulbach spent seventeen years as the Records Management Officer for the City of Houston and retired in 2008.Please register in advance at http://bit.ly/2c6aawa
