The Houston Texans and Apache are partnering with the Buffalo Bayou Partnership to start 'The Grove' where a tree will be planted for each Star of Courage recipient. The Star of Courage award recognizes first responders who have demonstrated excellence in leadership, bravery, and a commitment to Houston. We invite each of the honorees and their families, as well as all of the Houston community, to visit Buffalo Bayou Park and the Houston Police Officers Memorial to enjoy these beautiful trees.
