Baytown Nature Center 4/20/2019

Baytown Nature Center is a 500-acre peninsula surrounded by Burnet, Crystal and Scott Bays. It consists of hardwood uplands, high quality tidal marsh, and freshwater wetlands. This unique site provides habitat for 317 species of resident and migrant birds.

Our walk was done at this Nature Center.
