Bus Trips for Seniors

Are you over 50 and eager for birding and natural history adventures? Are you tired of driving through Houston traffic to reach a birding destination? We have the solution! We offer monthly senior bus trips with buses provided free of charge as a service by Harris County Precinct 3 Commissioner Tom Ramsey. Houston Audubon books a bus every month for adults age 50 and up. We provide snacks, refreshments and an experienced tour guide at our destination.

Reservations are required and attendance is limited due to bus capacity. A small fee is charged by Houston Audubon to cover costs for refreshments and entry fees. Participants will be required to sign Precinct 3 and Houston Audubon liability release forms for the trip. Precinct 3 regulations require that all participants must be 50 years or older.

Senior bus trips depart from Memorial City Mall. You will receive directions and times when you register. Bring your lunch in a soft-sided container and we will provide snacks, cold water, and an ice chest for your drinks. Note that there is no restroom on the county buses. Remember to bring your binoculars, insect protection, sturdy shoes, and rain gear if necessary. For more information and trip updates, contact Mary Anne Morris at
