It is a small area in a neighborhood of small beach houses. Looks like the local folks take care of the area. Good spot for birds, and sunset or sunrise from the observation tower.

I read about this sanctuary in the Houston Chronicle and couldn't wait to check it out. We went near the end of April which is still during the migrating season. We saw many of the "regulars" in the area but also did manage to see...More
