It is happening!!! Renovations to the tennis center are underway, but the courts are still open!!
We took 15 4-H leaders on a guided kayak tour of ABNC’s bayou! It was warm, but we had fun seeing all sorts of wildlife. Did you know: during droughts, our normally brackish water can get just as salty as Galveston bay! This actually helps get rid of invasive species like tilapia and water hyacinth.

These baby wood ducks are zooming to safety! The reeds on the shore of Horsepen bayou provide camouflage and help the ducks hide from predators. Wild ducks, unlike their city-dwelling counterparts, are very cautious and are easily startled into zooming away. Photo courtesy of Gary Seloff
