Come Wander Brazos Woods


3.19.19: We've reached capacity for this event and registration is now closed. 

The lush Columbia Bottomlands beckon visitors to spend a day wandering the woods in a little slice of paradise that’s just 60 miles southwest of Houston—but feels a million miles away. Nestled within this natural haven you’ll find our Brazos Woods Preserve, a 681-acre expanse that helps protect one of the most biologically diverse regions in Texas.

On April 6, 2019, The Nature Conservancy invites you to Come Wander the Brazos Woods with us during a special preserve open day and dedication event.

We’re honored to be recognizing our partner and special guest, BHP, whose support is instrumental in the continued protection of this critical natural area. Bring the family and join us for a day filled with food, fun and a chance to find your own adventure! You’ll have ample opportunities to hike, bird watch, or simply relax among the trees.

Rich, wild and unspoiled, the Brazos Woods welcome you to come wander—and then stay a while, immersing yourself in all the beauty nature has to offer.
