Hugh Ramsey Nature Park

About the Area

Hugh Ramsey Nature Park is a 55-acre tract of reclaimed land is covered in Texas ebony, mixed in with mesquite, huisache, brasil, retama and granjeno. This park is constantly being worked on to restore its quality of habitat for the benefit of wildlife by volunteers from Audubon and Texas Master Naturalist. While excellent birding in the winter months, it is a good migrant trap in spring. A newly-created hummingbird garden attracts the native Buff-bellied Hummingbird year round. Facilities include restrooms, a large pavilion with picnic tables, paved parking area, photo blinds and a network of nature trails. This park is site LTC026 of the Great Texas Coastal Birding Trail system.
