Thank you to all veterans, today and every day, for your service. Some of the land that is currently Memorial Park was once the site of Camp Logan, a WWI U.S. Army training camp, the historical remnants of which can still be found in parts of the Park.

Thank you for letting us know. We apologize for the technical difficulties with the map! We will repost a more high resolution image as soon as possible. Please stay tuned.

Kind of fitting that Veterans use the MTB trails there as a form of nature therapy!

I grew up in that area.I remember my parents telling me about this.Great history! There us to be a drug store called Camp logan on corner of Washington and Birdsall.

I had no idea that it was that big.

Love!

Sure would like to see a link to a better photo if possible

Did you know today is National Stress Awareness Day? Now’s the time to dial it back and try to reduce the impact of stress factors in your life. Many of us find that spending time at Memorial Park can be a great way to unplug and reconnect with what matters most. If you can’t make it to the Park today, we hope this photo of the beautiful black swallowtail butterfly will brighten your day. The black swallowtail is primarily black all over (go figure!) with bright yellow markings around the edges of both its fore and hindwings, as well as some blue and red markings on its hindwings. The male black swallowtail (pictured here) has a larger row of yellow markings whereas the female will have more blue markings on its hindwings. This photo was taken in Eastern Glades where the butterfly was relieving stress of its own by visiting the blooming Liatris pycnostachya, also known as prairie blazing star. #WildlifeWednesday

This year’s fall migration is running longer than usual, and birders across Houston are finding some interesting late migrants. A sharp-eyed visitor to the Arboretum even spotted a new species for us: an Ovenbird! This strange little warbler looks and acts more like a thrush. It walks along the forest floor, picking through the leaf litter for tiny insects. They even nest on the ground, weaving a domed, brick oven-shaped structure well-hidden by a blanket of leaves. We’re thrilled to have this sweet little forest-dweller as our 187th bird species at the Arboretum. #BeakOfTheWeek #WildlifeWednesday

We’ve been catching glimpses of Nashville Warblers this week as they migrate through the Arboretum. These lovely warblers are especially common here during fall migration. They are looking for tiny caterpillars to fuel them on their long journey. Did you know that dogwood trees (like the one in this photo) support more than 70 species of caterpillars? Or that native oak trees host more than 400 species? The best way to feed wild birds is to plant native! You can find native dogwoods, oaks, and more at our annual Fall Plant Sale this Friday and Saturday. #BeakOfTheWeek #WildlifeWednesday

The Second Saturday Bird Survey was fairly quiet until the very end of the walk when we stumbled on a big flock of migrants. We kept seeing flashes of orange-gold – and then finally a female Summer Tanager popped into view! She even followed us for a while, giving us great looks at her chunky beak. Like the warblers she was flocking with, she was gorging on insects and berries to fuel up for her long journey south. Summer Tanagers often spend the winter in Central American shade-grown coffee plantations, which is why we chose one as the logo of our Katz Coffee Arboretum Early Bird Blend. Buying bird-friendly coffee is a great way to support migrants like tanagers. #BeakOfTheWeek #WildlifeWednesday

The Arboretum is buzzing with buntings! For the past week we’ve been hearing the buzzy “dzeet” calls (https://www.xeno-canto.org/326731) of migrating Indigo Buntings. These sparrow-like birds pass through the Arboretum in spring and fall, gathering in grassy clearings and forest edges. Unfortunately, males grow a new coat of brown-tipped feathers before migration, so both males and females are dull at this time of year. However, if you look hard enough you might spot a hint of blue peeking through on the males. The brown feather tips will wear down through the winter, eventually revealing the hidden indigo color in time for spring. #BeakOfTheWeek #WildlifeWednesday

It’s the amazing art teacher Charolette Cosgrove. I had the pleasure to study art at Glassell under years ago when I was at St. Thomas in college. She is an amazing instructor.
