Houston Outdoors LIVE

Kayaking 101


Ever searched for “Houston Outdoor Live”? 

What comes up is eating, drinking and sitting down to listen to music.  Nothing wrong with eating, drinking or music, we LOVE all of these.  And, we want to see our Houstonian friends outside digging all this city has to offer.  With 52,912 acres of parkland, 163 miles of biking trails and 2500 miles of waterway there is no shortage of playgrounds.  BCO & HTXO are on a mission this summer to teach our friends everything they need to know to be an outdoor ninja.  (or – another sentence: we are on a mission this summer to teach you everything you need to be outdoor savvy)


Wednesdays, starting May 10rd and finishing up June 21st we are bringing Houston Outdoor LIVE to a local locale near you (while broadcasting LIVE on Facebook for those who can’t make the show).  From parks to bayous, bike trails to hiking trails we’re highlighting the Great Outdoors in Houston by uncovering everything there is to do, plus showing how to do it!


Each week we’ll take a topic, drill down as quick & deep as we can to get you up to speed and out playing.  We’ll take Q&A after the presentation to help guide everyone into outdoor summer fun mastery.
