Gulfton is an international community with about 58% of residents born outside of the United States, 75% of whom were born in Latin America. We partner with Greener Gulfton, The Nature Conservancy, Harris County Precinct 4 and Madres del Parque, a dedicated group of mothers supporting and enhancing the community, to create nature-inspired activities at Burnett Bayland Park and surrounding areas.

Learn more about the Greener Gulfton plan.



The Sunnyside neighborhood is southern Houston’s oldest African American community. Houston Audubon partners with community gardens, local schools, and Nature Heritage Society, a non-profit environmental education & outdoor recreation organization, to provide the community with nature-based programming in green spaces.

Learn about Hills at Sims, a Harris County Precinct One project to transform the Hill at Sims into a public park.

Third Ward

Third Ward

Third Ward is a predominantly African American community with a rich history and cultural legacy. Houston Audubon partners with Friends of Columbia Tap, a group dedicated to the wellbeing of the Columbia Tap Trail. This 4-mile hike-and-bike trail connects Downtown Houston to the Brays Bayou Greenway trail, following the historic Columbia Tap railroad route.
