Welcome to the
Armand Bayou Nature Center
Visit this astonishingly beautiful part of the Texas Gulf Coast and "reconnect with nature". Become aware of how Armand Bayou Nature Center (ABNC), nestled in the Clear Lake Area, is working to preserve the wetlands prairie, forest and marsh habitats surrounding Armand Bayou. 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, alligators, turtles, 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 on a guided canoe tour. In order for ABNC to continue to preserve this "Natural Place", please consider becoming a member.
