Follow the trails and the center’s 600-foot-long interpretive boardwalk through three ecosystems. At Armand Bayou Overlook, watch out over the water for shorebirds, including egrets, cormorants, and ospreys. While winding through the woods, listen for the sounds of the more than 220 bird species that live here. At the Prairie Platform, gaze over one of the last remaining prairies in the Houston area. This is an outstanding hike for families with young children due to the live exhibits and discovery areas.
