Paddle the Armand Bayou Watershed and the surrounding waterways.
You don't have to travel that far from downtown Houston to discover the hidden wildlife tucked away within our city. Your adventure will begin at Bay Area Park located at 7500 Bay Area Blvd, Houston, TX. From there you can paddle to 5 different areas. Big Island Slough, Spring Gully, Armand Bayou, Horsepen Bayou, and Lake Mark Kramer. Discover the wildlife you didn't know existed in the Houston area and perhaps in your own backyards. This series of watersheds are the life that feeds the Gulf and you. It's also the land that helps filter and drain off all the flood waters of the Bayou City.
You might be surprised to discover what lives and thrives throughout our bayous, watersheds, and lakes in the Houston area. Once you are on the water the concrete jungle disappears and nature comes to life. You're not in Kansas anymore Toto. It can sometimes seem other worldly. Along your path you may encounter a variety of wildlife. We are on one of the largest migratory bird paths in the world so we are home to over 250 types of birds who pass through our area. You may also encounter Alligators, Water Birds, Dragonflies, Butterflies, Turtles, and the occasional human, just to name a few. I bet you could compile a pretty decent list of wildlife that you didn't expect to discover on your wildlife experience. Make a reservation and find out what you've been missing. Or just go for the relaxing paddle away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
