Bird Surveys

Memorial Park - Eastern Glades Bird Survey

Special Project

There have been 147 bird species observed within Memorial Park outside of the Hogg Bird Sanctuary and the Houston Arboretum. The Eastern Glades is the first major Master Plan project to be implemented. It is set to be completed in 2020. This area was once inaccessible due to a lack of trails and heavy overgrowth within the forest. The main feature of the current project will be a large pond surrounded by wetland plants. It will serve the dual purpose of new wildlife habitat and stormwater retention. This survey will help assess the bird diversity within Eastern Glades.
