The Baytown Nature Center, located at 6213 Bayway Drive, is a 450-acre peninsula surrounded by three bays. More than 300 species of birds depend on this area for migration, feeding or nesting.
But this recreated wetland isn’t just for the birds. Numerous other animals also call the nature center home. In addition, it’s an important nursery area for a variety of aquatic species, including shrimp, crab and fish.
This former residential subdivision now features picnic shelters, three fishing piers, two pavilions and two overlooks. There’s also the Crystal Bay Butterfly Garden, the Children’s Nature Discovery Area and the Myra C. Brown Bird Sanctuary.
