History

Armand Bayou Nature Center is the largest urban wilderness preserve in the United States. The preserve was founded in 1974 and is home of more than 370 specie of birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Over 220 species of birds reside or rely on the center as a safe-resting place on their migratory journeys. The Nature Center lies on the largest migratory bird route in North America.

The center was named after Armand Yramategui, a Houston environmental advocate who died in 1970. Yramategui, concerned about the increasing urban growth around the bayou, worked to have the land remain a wilderness.
