As a nature preserve with three distinct ecosystems, Armand Bayou Nature Center is one of the best places to take pictures in the Houston area.

We are happy to have photographers who appreciate the natural beauty at ABNC, but we ask you to please follow a few simple rules to keep the nature center clean and safe for all visitors and wildlife.

We kindly ask that you refrain from the following:

  • Blocking access to trails, platforms, or any other areas

  • Entering locked buildings

  • Climbing on equipment, buildings, railings, fences, or other structures

  • Moving nature center property

  • Straying from the marked trails—this is for your safety and to avoid damaging sensitive habitats

  • Inappropriate clothing or nude photography

  • Disturbing or touching wildlife or wildlife ambassadors

 Also, please refrain from using the following prohibited items: 

  • Drones

  • Excessive lighting equipment (flashes are ok)

  • Large props

  • Rice

  • Confetti

  • Glitter

  • Peanut shells

  • Fireworks

  • Silly string

  • Balloons

  • Bonfires

  • Styrofoam

  • Pets

  • Alcohol

ABNC is privately managed and reserves the right to ask visitors who are not abiding by these rules to leave the center without a refund.  ABNC closes promptly at 5:00, and we kindly ask that all guests exit before that time.

Thank you very much!  We hope you enjoy your time at ABNC!
