He’s known worldwide as the “father of fracking,” but residents here know him best as a pioneer and environmentally minded developer who founded The Woodlands community on 27,000 wooded acres located 30 miles north of Houston. Tomorrow we all have an opportunity to celebrate his life and legacy.
On Thursday, August 8, a memorial tribute service will be hosted in his honor at his late wife’s namesake venue, The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. The event will celebrate George P. Mitchell’s contributions to science, energy and the environment as well as feature a moving performance by The Houston Symphony. The tribute is open to the public.
Gates open at 6 p.m. and the service will begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. and continue until 9 p.m. Preferred parking is available in the Gold Lot parking garage, and tickets are not required.
