  • Many boardwalks are gone, and trash is everywhere,but the people are super and the birds are there. The area needs business for income, and is rebuilding. We met wonderful people there, and I am so gl...  more »
  • A bleak example of the damage caused by Hurricane Harvey. From the looks of it, it will be quite some time before this nice little site is fixed up to its former state. Most of the boardwalk is in pie...  more »
  • Stopped by the Center in early January. Boardwalk is 2/3 destroyed by Hurricane Harvey. Still able to see birds including a couple of whooping cranes!  more »

  • Spent the day adding additional native plants & cleaned up beds a little more. Looking really awesome for visitors!
  • Very short walk with boardwalk and viewing tower. Great short adventure for young kids. We went twice in one week and were lucky to have Big AL the alligator swim right up to the boardwalk both days. We saw various birds and waterfowl, lizards on the sidewalk and many large fish swimming in the shallows. All within a hour. Maybe we were lucky, but what a great day to see all of that, in their wild habitat, in one hour. Worth the gamble.
  • Can not say enough nice things. Situated in a nice quiet corner you can immerse yourself in nature. Take a quiet walk down the boardwalk and use the lookout binoculars to see wild boar, nutria, spoonbills and resident alligators. Several beautifully illustrated images help u identify the birds you have spotted on your walk.
  • Not the same since Harvey wiped out the viewing station on the Walk Way
  • Fun little boardwalk, wish it was longer. There's a gator but it was far away in a clearing we could only see with binoculars. Its safe to bring children even with the gators thanks to the boardwalk. Great place for them to see baby birds.
