All About Bees with Buffalo Bayou
Buffalo Bayou Partnership (BBP), the non-profit organization creating and stewarding parks and trails along Buffalo Bayou, is pleased to announce its second annual Summer Species –BEES! Summer Species is a celebration of bayou-adjacent flora and fauna. Beginning in 2021 with its exploration of bats, BBP has committed to honoring a new species every year.

At locations ranging from Yolanda Black Navarro Buffalo Bend Nature Park to Buffalo Bayou Park, experts will lead workshops, walks, talks, and experiential activities for participants of all ages.

With a book by Tony® and Academy® Award-nominee Douglas McGrath, direction by Marc Bruni and choreography by Josh Prince, Beautiful features a stunning array of beloved songs written by Gerry Goffin/Carole King and Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil. On October 27, 2019, the Broadway production of Beautiful – The Carole King Musical ended its smash-hit, record-breaking run after nearly six years. By the time the production took its final bow, it played 60 previews and 2,418 regular performances, surpassing the original production of Annie and the landmark 1998 revival of Cabaret to become the 27th longest-running musical (and the second longest running “bio-musical”) in Broadway history. On Broadway, the show was seen by almost 2,200,000 audience members (including, quite famously, King herself) and is the longest-running and highest-grossing show in the history of the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.
