Experience first hand how Armand Bayou Nature Center (ABNC) is working to preserve the wetlands prairie, forest and marsh habitats surrounding Armand Bayou. Visit this astonishingly beautiful part of the Texas Gulf Coast and “reconnect with nature”. Visitors can learn about our plant and animal inhabitants, bird-watch, hike on the Nature Center’s trails or view our live animal displays of snakes, spiders, hawks and bison. A visit to the Center’s Martyn Farm will take you back in time to late 1800’s farm life in Texas. Before you leave, make reservations to see the beauty of Armand Bayou on the “Bayou Ranger”, an electric pontoon boat, or in a guided canoe tour. Hours of Operation: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Wednesday through Saturday; 12:00 noon to 5:00 pm Sundays. Last admission at 4:00pm, gates locked at 5:00pm. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
