Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary
The Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary is located on the Bolivar Peninsula in the Galveston Bay. The sanctuary is comprised of salt marshes, mudflats, uplands and beaches. Thousands of wading birds, wintering shorebirds, including endangered Piping Plovers and threatened Snowy Plovers live in the sanctuary. Bird watchers from across the globe visit this Houston sanctuary each year.
The mudflats, near the mouth of the Galveston Bay, were formed by the sediments in the North Jetty that have built up since the 1800s. Invertebrates live in the mudflats and are joined by the shellfish and marine organisms living in the adjacent salt marshes. Visitors love to catch the blue crabs, flounder and trout that live along the Peninsula. Stay close to the sanctuary, in a comfortable Best Western guest room and enjoy your time in beautiful Houston.
