Be advised our upland walking trail is closed from 6/26/17 to 6/30/17 for repairs. Due to recent heavy rains our polder and basin driving rails are also closed to driving until further notice. All driving trails are open to hiking only. Please call us at 210-628-1639 with any questions.
Thank you to Texas Parks & Wildlife Department for helping fund our trail maintenance.
Bird conservation is at the core of what we do.

Our wetland habitat is one of the last critical stopover grounds before the Texas Coast, where 98.5% of long-distance migratory bird species in the US pass through, many which are about to fly for hours or days over open ocean. Not only are we one of the best spots for birding in San Antonio, we also open our doors to more than 3,000 students annually for outdoor science and conservation education, which most students do not get in traditional schooling. So, come explore our habitat, walk our native gardens, take a class or a tour, volunteer, or give your support to our education and conservation programs. Whatever your age or interests we have a way to help connect you the wild and beautiful natural place we live, 20 minutes south of downtown.
