The San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge is an excellent place to bird-on-your-own in small groups or individually just outside of Lake Jackson. The refuge’s unique blend of coastal marsh, prairies, potholes, fresh water lakes and oak forests make it prime site for birding of all types. Auto-tours, hiking trails and boardwalks are great for spotting migrating warblers, cinnamon teals, purple gallinules, and western rarities. Bobcats, river otters, alligators, and turtles also make their home at San Bernard National Wildlife Refuge. Trails include: Cocklebur Slough Auto Tour, Cow Trap Marsh Trail, Bobcat Woods Trail, San Bernard Oak Trail, and the Scissortail Trail. Great for kayaking! Don’t veer from marked trails and bring water, sunscreen, and insect repellant. The San Bernard Oak Trail is currently closed due to the condition of the boardwalk.
