Some of the best birding in the United States lies just a short drive from Houston, the fourth-largest city in the country (after New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago). Of the parks and natural areas within the metropolitan area itself, one of the most noteworthy is this 2,500-acre preserve southeast of the city center. Bordered by NASA’s Johnson Space Center, petrochemical plants, and housing subdivisions, this oasis of wetlands, woodland, and grassland serves as an invaluable educational resource for Houstonians as well as a refuge for a variety of wildlife.
