Spring Creek Survey

Participants on the May 6, 2023 survey. JoJo is in the middle with sunglasses and a dark blue birdy t-shirt.

Please note: After a summer break, our walks will resume in September.

All levels of skill are welcome to join. Please bring binoculars and bring your sunscreen and bug spray. We will meet at the Creekside Park West Trailhead. Typical surveys are approximately 3 miles on a natural surface (not paved) trail. There are no restroom or water refill facilities at this location. We meet under a covered seating area at the trail entrance. It’s easy to spot from the paved parking lot. The address can be input into navigation applications as: Dr. Anne Snyder Drive, Tomball, TX 77375.

Walks are held on Monday mornings from 7:30 to 10:30 AM (September - May), and the first Saturday of the month from September through May. Please register to participate, using the button at the top of the page. You only need to register once. The walks are free, but donations to Bayou Land Conservancy are always appreciated.

About the Survey

Bayou Land Conservancy's survey meanders along the Spring Creek Nature Trail, a natural surface trail around ponds and tranquil wetlands, through trees and natural grassy areas, therefore you should wear hiking shoes that you don’t mind getting wet, as there may be muddy areas along the trail and a sandy/rocky stream crossing that we may cross depending on the amount of water at the time. Wading birds are frequently observed in open water ponds, raptors are seen on the water’s edge in snags or tall trees, and songbirds are viewed throughout the trail.
