COVID-19 Response

Updated December 1, 2021

Houston Audubon is following all public health recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and county guidelines regarding the transmission of COVID-19. We strongly encourage wearing masks while indoors in group activities and social distancing at all Houston Audubon programs and sanctuaries. Please be mindful that Houston Audubon trails are narrower than many state and federal parks.

Houston Audubon will continue to mitigate threats by keeping doors open and limiting time indoors. Harris County has moved to Level 3: Vigilant Unless Fully Vaccinated  (Moderate Threat). Harris County states that all unvaccinated individuals should continue to wear masks and social distance. The latest CDC guidelines can be found at
