As part of a comprehensive storm surge protection strategy, former Secretary of State James A. Baker III and Houston businessman John L. Nau will lead a coalition to push for a 130 mile long nationally significant recreation area across the 4 coastal counties of the Houston region, according to the Houston Chronicle.

The proposal for the Lone Star Coastal National Recreational Area is being developed as a partnership of Houston Wilderness, Rice University’s SSPEED (Severe Storm Prediction, Education, and Evacuation from Disasters), and the National Parks Conservation Association, and would include a patchwork of discontinuous public and private lands in the proposed coastal buffer zone.
