MetadataShow full item record
The Baytown Nature Center, an oasis surrounded by large industrial development and people, speaks to man's constant need for discovery and revitalization. In addition to its historically rich past, the nature center offers several opportunities for educating visitors of today be they young or old, educator or student, accidental passerby or deliberate tourist, sun-parched fisherman or avid bird watcher. Understanding and protecting this sensitive ecosystem demands that we provide reasons and nurture appreciation for careful stewardship of the area. Where teachers come, students follow, has proven to be true. Listening to the insights of the people interacting with the environment awakens a sense of awe in each of us.
