See the Wildlife at the Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary

Not far from our Houston apartments is an exciting destination that protects native plants and wildlife. The Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary allows you to enjoy the outdoors during a self-guided tour. Here is some of what you'll discover along the way:

Log Cabin

The first stop, the log cabin dates back to 1932. Edith and her husband built the home using native pines from the surrounding forest. In 1975, Edith left the cabin and 17.5 acres of land to the Houston Audubon to be preserved as a nature sanctuary. Today, the cabin is a Texas Historic Landmark and is the only log home in Houston still standing in its original location.

Rummel Creek

Be sure to stop along Rummel Creek. It offers a fabulous spot for wildlife viewing. The fish are mainly young black bass, and you're likely to also see swamp rabbits and red-eared slider turtles. These turtles live in marshy areas. They're recognized by their green skin with yellow stripes and a red patch behind each eye. Red-eared turtles are almost completely aquatic and are extremely alert.

Campsite at the Oxbow

True to its name, Campsite at the Oxbow was once a prime campsite for the Akokisas. They were hunter-gatherers and spent the spring and summer months camping at the mouths of rivers entering Galveston Bay. In this area, you'll also see a towering sugar hackberry tree. Native to the southeastern United States, these trees grow along streams and flood plains. At the sanctuary, the tree's leaves draw tiny wasps and play host to several species of butterfly caterpillars.

For another way to enjoy the outdoors, visit some of the area's best fishing spots. If you would like to call Lincoln Heights home, please contact our leasing team. They'll gladly arrange a tour where you can see our apartments in Houston firsthand.
