The Montgomery County Preserve provides a wonderful area for birdwatching, native plant observation, and hiking. It's permanently protected with a conservation easement held by the Legacy Land Trust (the first of its kind in the nation), a nonprofit organization directly involved in protecting land for its natural, recreational, scenic, and historical value.
The green way is free to visit and open to the public daily, bringing many ecotourists to southern Montgomery County. Local Master Naturalists as well as Butterfly Enthusiasts of Southeast Texas (B.E.S.T.) host official national butterfly counts, monitor water quality, and provide educational programs for area citizens.
