The Houston weather in August is brutal. Walking outdoor is a challenge, unless you find a place like this where you can walk in shade of big trees. E. L. Moore Nature Sanctuary is one of few in the middle of Houston. Grab a book or iPad (whatever you have) and enjoy reading a book in a quiet atmosphere where... More

During a family visit to Houston, I needed to get out and have some time with nature. Luckily in the middle of the city I found the Edith Moore Audabon nature preserve. It was a lovely walk on 17.5 acres of trails, and there were many birds and other wildlife. So very peaceful and tranquil. The trails are groomed enough... More

I have been coming here for over 20 years, and every time I do it seems more beautiful. As the city expands around this piece of paradise, the trees grow older and scenery is that much more special. If you like to hike, walk, or just need to be outdoors without a drive this place is amazing. Just take care... More

A little slice of nature in an urban environment- this is a good way to describe the Edith Moore Nature Sanctuary. It’s the headquarters of the Houston Audubon and one of those places that surprises in multiple ways when you visit for the first time. Edith Moore Nature Sanctuary is hidden away, with a narrow entrance in a residential neighborhood.... More

The Edith Moore Sanctuary is a little piece of nature in the city. It is a great area for a nature walk with clear paths, ponds and a creek. There are plenty of benches to sit and enjoy. It is the best area for bird watching. The old cabin has bird feeders that attracted so many birds. I saw 16... More

We went on a rainy day. There isn't really much here if the weather isn't nice enough to walk the trails or you aren't in a school group. Finding the entrance is pretty tricky if you don't have a GPS since it's hidden in a subdivision. We'll go back sometime when the sun is shining to see if we like... More

I think that the old saying 'Mad dogs and Englishman go out in the midday sun' is correct in my case. Mid August and I cycled the 30 minutes from my hotel to the Edith. L. Moore sanctuary and found myself pretty much alone. Not even the animals were going to brave the heat but that being said I still... More
