  • Description - Houston Nature Center

    Welcome to the Houston Nature Center, Houston’s trailhead for the Root River Trail. Thanks to our free showers, clean restrooms, native plantings, recycled bicycle art, and vehicle shuttle service, we’ve earned the reputation as the best trailhead in the state! The Houston Nature Center is focused on local wildlife – things that are in the area, used to be here, or show up on occasion. This includes a woolly mammoth tooth, an extinct giant bison skull, a gray wolf, an elk antler that was locally shed in the 1800s, and a mount of two white-tailed deer with locked antlers. The Houston Nature Center offers a variety of summer programs, and a plethora of owl programs for every age.
