Raptor and Education Center

The Houston Audubon Raptor and Education Center (HAREC) at Sims Bayou is a picturesque 1.1-acre sanctuary located in historic Park Place on the original channel of Sims Bayou.

Please note: beginning November 1, the Raptor Center is closed to the public for renovations. During this time, our education team will continue to deliver programming at Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary and in and around our Houston-area communities.
