Help Save Our Wild Places: Adopt an Acre Today

Adopt-an-Acre logo

Coastal prairies, marshes, bottomland forests, rookery islands, and more. Open lands provide food, shelter, and water for birds and other wildlife. Help Houston Audubon protect natural habitats from the piney woods to the gulf shores in the Houston-Galveston region. With more than 3,400 acres under our wings, your sponsorship through adoption helps us prepare and provide for new tree plantings, invasive species removal, wildflowers and native grasses, boardwalks, trails, and whatever is needed most to care for these rare, vanishing places.

As a land trust, Houston Audubon owns, operates, and manages 17 bird sanctuaries spanning 3,400 acres in our region. Help us continue a long legacy of providing for these habitats through the adopt-an-acre program. Please select an area to adopt:

  • Bolivar Peninsula: Bolivar Flats, Horseshoe Marsh, Mundy Marsh
  • High Island: Boy Scout Woods, Smith Oaks, The Rookery, Eubanks Woods, S.E. Gast Redbay
