The Wilderness Passport provides an accessible guide to visiting the natural world in the Houston area in the context of our local ecoregions. The Wilderness Passport lists state parks, wildlife refuges, museums, arboretums, and nature centers in each of our 7 land-based and 3 water-based ecoregions. The Wilderness Passport was piloted in 2005 and distributed to thousands of fourth graders in Houston Independent School District. You can download the passport and parent guide below, as well as a spreadsheet of passport sites.
