Nature & Birding
Get nurtured by nature in Bay Area Houston. Thousands of acres are dedicated to wildlife preserves, nature centers, hiking trails, and waterways that house some of the most diverse ecosystems in the country. Explore the wetlands, woodland, and tall grass prairies that hundreds of species call home.
Birdwatchers, take note: we’re located on two migratory flyways and are part of the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail. People say we’re “for the birds,” and it’s true! Visitors come from all over the world to witness our rich avian diversity and catch glimpses of rare warblers, stunning herons, and more.
Almost as diverse as the Bay’s wildlife (alligators, deer, bobcats also call this area home!) are the ways to get out and explore. Hiking, biking, boating, birding, and fishing are popular pastimes, and we have the amenities to prove it. Well-maintained trails, beautiful public parks with gigantic play structures, long fishing piers, and pontoon nature tours are just part of what you can expect on your next trip to the Bay.
Let’s explore — who knows what you’ll find?
