Of course there will be educational live animal presentations at the pavilion throughout the day as well! The center’s partner facility, the Eddie V. Gray Wetlands Education Center, will also be on hand with some of their live animal and education exhibits.


The festival has grown each year it has been held, and we look forward to adding you to our mix!If you are not familiar with the Baytown Nature Center, its history is a success story in “reusing” at its finest… it is the former site of the Brownwood Subdivision that was destroyed by Hurricane Alicia in 1983, and subsequently restored to a nature center by removing all houses and infrastructure. The center has been the site of numerous mitigation projects, and boasts over 100 acres of high quality restored salt marsh.
