oakhurst...thinking green!

22 Jul 2014 - News

Oakhurst became greener April 1st, with the implementation of community wide recycling through WM!  We are excited and proud that our community became one of the first communities in Kingwood to enhance recycling efforts with the 64 gallon cart.

The first quarter results are in...and they are impressive. Oakhurst diverted 54 tons from the landfill!  This is equivalent to...conserving 16,148 gallons of gasoline; removing the annual emissions from 28 cars off the road; greenhouse gas emissions reduction of 144 metric tons of CO2 equivalent!

Remember that Friday is the weekly pick up for recycling!

living harmoniously with wildlife in our community

The interface between people and animals is constantly growing and changing. Human presence alters the wildlife communities that can thrive in our urban landscape.

We create an uneasy balance when we place attractive habitat near our homes and then try to control which wildlife shows up, and in what quantity.

We should try to be observant and respectful of all our neighbors--whether they are raccoons, opossums, birds, turtles or people. We need to learn how to all live with each other.

Fortunately, most wildlife populations contribute to a more positive urban environment. Innovative trials at Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool, England, found tangible health benefits in patients exposed to nature, especially the calls of local birds. Patients undergoing painful bone marrow extractions at Johns Hopkins reported less pain during treatment when exposed to the sights and sounds of local wildlife.

According to researchers at Texas Tech University, homes with a higher diversity of songbirds bring a higher price on the market.

Have you heard of wildlife biologists in the big city? Meet some urban biologists from the Texas Parks and Wildlife who strive to help wildlife and urban life coexist.
