These 8.8 acres of woods and former pasture are being turned into woods. The property was donated to Houston Audubon by Amoco Production Company in 1994. It is named in honor of Steve Gast, who led the High Island Initiative that resulted in Amoco's donation of property to Houston Audubon. Open to the public sunrise to sunset year round.
