Off Memorial Drive, you will discover one of Houston’s hidden gems – The Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary an 18 acre sanctuary with a 1932 log cabin (but I’ll allow you to discover more of the history when you’re visiting-can’t ruin all the surprise effects for ya!) . If you need to escape from your fast paced life but don’t have time to go anywhere…try this enjoying nature in this little slice of paradise. Check the link for open/close times but generally 7am-7pm via automatic locking gate. This is a popular place for birding folks and people looking for a peaceful walk. If you need some tranquility in your life along with some pretty birds and rabbits grab your car keys and head out. Oh and did I mention ….it’s FREE 🙂 entertainment!
Note: Parking is actually in the church parking lot of Memorial Drive United Methodist Church (look for the chain link fence and gate – it will be obvious-see below photo) at 12955 Memorial Dr, Houston, TX 77079
Advice: Bring your camera, bug spray, comfy shoes and I’d suggest whatever the weather says, plan on it being at least 5-10 degrees hotter while in the sanctuary. It can get pretty hot and humid towards to warmer months. Also, morning is best for you bird watchers.Oh, here is a pdf map you can print of the trails. Enjoy!!!
