Listen in as Tom Kartrude tells Talk of the Bay about Armand Bayou Nature Center.
One of the largest urban wildlife and wilderness preserves in the U.S., Armand Bayou is home to bison, raptors and reptiles. The Center offers a boardwalk through a woodland-pond area, a bird blind, walking trails, a late 1800s farm site, pontoon boat tours and guided canoe tours. Three ecosystems with over 2,500 acres of bayou, forest and prairie are refuge for more than 360 species of animals and birds. Reservations required for boat tours and canoe trips.
Admission is $4 for adults and $2 for children 4-12 and seniors 60 and older; no cost for members. Purchase a five person family pack for $10 from the Bay Area Houston Visitor Center at 913 N. Meyer in Seabrook
