Edith L Moore Nature Sanctuary

Established in 1941, this 17.5-acre haven was once the home of Edith L. Moore, a fervent nature enthusiast, and her husband Jesse, an oil industry businessman. They donated their rustic log cabin and woodlands to the Houston Audubon Society, embodying their commitment to preserving natural beauty and wildlife in urban Texas.

Visitors to the sanctuary can explore a network of trails winding through dense forests, past a meandering creek, and around the restored log cabin, dating back to the 1930s. Renowned for its birdwatching opportunities, with over 170 bird species recorded, the sanctuary is a prime spot for ornithologists and nature lovers alike. Educational programs and guided tours provide insights into the area’s ecosystem and conservation efforts, enhancing the visitor experience.
