The Baytown Rotary Club hosted a luncheon at the Wetlands Center where we were entertained with a presentation of the tactile learning styles and activities offered to all Houston Regional school districts.

Can you crab and take home? What is this about a lot of snakes? So is there a possibility that we can be struck by one?

HISTORY The Wetlands Center, located on the banks of Goose Creek, opened on January 26, 1998. Eddie Gray, a member of the Goose Creek Stream Greenbelt Development Committee, sought the committee’s permission to purchase an abandoned bowling alley and turn it into a wetlands center. In 1996, after the land was purchased, the Committee applied for and received a $350,000 matching grant from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to develop the center. Lee College and Goose Creek Consolidated Independent School District (GCCISD) also entered into agreements to support and use the facility. Each contributes funds annually. The center property encompasses six acres. The 14,000 square-foot building includes staff offices, meeting rooms, a science lab, a computer lab and an exhibit hall.

They don't charge admission but rely on donations. This was very interesting and a lot of snakes, but still fun to go to just to say you have been there. May go again.

We enjoyed this nature center while in the local area. It had a few live animals such as turtles, crocodiles, and snakes set up in great displays. It wasn't overly large but a fun place for families to visit. The bird display was great to see!
