Boy Scout Woods consists of 60 acres of woods, coastal prairie and wetlands– one mile from the Gulf of Mexico on High Island. Open to the public year round, Boy Scout Woods has extensive boardwalks that make birding possible for wheelchair-bound birders. Volunteers host the Boy Scout Woods Sanctuary daily from mid-March to early May each spring at the height of spring bird migration. The High Island sanctuaries are fee sites–a day pass costs $8 and a patch costs $30 and provides admission to all High Island sanctuaries for one year. Houston Audubon owns and manages four sanctuaries on High Island, including Boy Scout Woods.
