Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary

The Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary in West Houston is a 17.5 acre wooded sanctuary along Rummel Creek with a restored log cabin that houses a variety of education programs reaching out into Houston and surrounding areas. Open to the public 365 days a year, it also contains Houston Audubon administrative offices. Our automatic gate currently opens at 7:00 AM and closes at 7:00 PM (9:00 PM in summer), and birders are welcome.

The mission of the Houston Audubon Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary is to provide an urban wildlife sanctuary for native plants and animals and to provide education about the natural environment to Houstonians of all ages. An average of 10,000 people participate in hands-on, environmental education programs at the sanctuary each year.


Within its 17.5 acres of hardwood and pine forest and freshwater habitats, the Edith L Moore Nature Sanctuary provides an important home for native wildlife. Resident mammals, migratory songbirds, shorebirds, birds of prey and a variety of species of reptiles and amphibians live within the sanctuary. Within Rummel Creek and the ponds of the sanctuary, you can find resident bull frogs, as well as bronze and leopard frogs. Many turtles and several species of Water Snakes and aquatic invertebrates also call our creek and pond habitats home.
