TX Attractions

Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary

Located on the Bolivar Peninsula, the Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary is set in Galveston Bay in the Houston area.

This Gulf Coast sanctuary is comprised of salt marshes, mudflats, uplands, and beaches. Thousands of wading birds and wintering shorebirds – including endangered Piping Plovers and threatened Snowy Plovers – live in the sanctuary.

The mudflats, near the mouth of the Galveston Bay, were formed by the sediments in the North Jetty building up since the 1800s. Invertebrates live in the mudflats and are joined by the shellfish and marine organisms living in the adjacent salt marshes. 

Bird watchers from across the globe visit this Houston sanctuary each year. Visitors also love to catch the blue crabs, flounder, and trout along the Bolivar Peninsula.
