Get Involved

The Environmental Institute of Houston wants you to be a part of what we are doing for the community and the environment. Much of EIH's research is funded through external grants, but EIH's work would not be possible without support from individuals like you. Whether it's volunteering your time or making a donation, we welcome the opportunity for you to contribute to the fulfillment of our mission.

Volunteering on research projects usually requires a day-long commitment. UHCL students can gain valuable field experience while earning volunteer hours; SCE students may earn credit. This is a great opportunity for students interested in science careers. For current research projects, visit:

Texas EnvirothonTexas Envirothon
Envirothon is an environmental competition for high school students. We have a need for many volunteers for this three-day competition, which takes place in the spring. If you would like more information about the location of this year's event, please visit or email Wendy Reistle at

Volunteer TuesdaysVolunteer Tuesdays
Maintenance of the WaterSmart habitat takes place every Tuesday from 9am to 11am when school is in session. Habitat volunteers help weed and mulch flower beds, plant native plants, maintain pathways, and trim trees and bushes. Volunteers may also help clean out the pond on select workdays. We provide gloves and tools, but you may bring your own. Student and community groups are welcome! Please notify Wendy Reistle (281-283-3045 or in advance if you have a large group or if you would like to schedule your group on a different day.

Additionally, we are always looking for corporate sponsors to partner with on our education programs.
