Mission
To increase and foster sustained pride, responsibility and beauty in our community in Missouri City, TX.

Missouri City Green was formed in late summer 2010 by a group of concerned Missouri City residents. The group saw the need to enhance the beauty and livability of Missouri City. Although members in the organization have interests in a variety of outdoor and environmental activities, the organization has developed three main priorities:

Recycling
Members of Missouri City Green volunteer on a semi-regular basis in recycling activities in Missouri City. They work closely with Shane Mize, Missouri City's Recreation Superintendent. Missouri City Green aims to someday assist the City Parks & Recreation Department in developing its recycling center to a more efficient and user-friendly venue. In the meantime, organization members wholeheartedly support the advances that have already been made and publicly applaud those efforts.

Native Trees & Plants
Members of Missouri City Green also volunteer with the City's Parks & Recreation Department, primarily with the City Forester, on a variety of native tree (and plant) plantings and events. The members believe one of the ways to make Missouri City more "Green" is by planting the right trees and plants and caring for them. In addition to assisting the City, Missouri City Green aims to have its own events to further "greening" Missouri City in concert with the Parks & Recreation Department.

In addition to the above activities, Missouri City Green members help pick up litter in City parks and network with City and community members on a variety of issues including the above and hike and bike trails, gardening and much more!

Environmental Education
Members of Missouri City Green believe that recycling, native tree plantings or other environmental activities are not sustainable without education. Whenever possible the organization works either on its own, or in conjunction with the City, to offer environmental education on recycling, native trees and plants, littering, composting and other related activities that help to keep our community and world a more beautiful place.
