Armand Bayou

Gorgeous pink muhly laced into the tall grasses

Yesterday I had the opportunity to visit one of the only remaining tallgrass prairies Armand Bayou with my AP Environmental Science class. Because I live in the suburbs of Houston, it’s hard to believe that places like Armand Bayou still exist with all the native wildlife and plants. Our day consisted of wildlife plant restoration and my favorite part: walking into the Bayou. Despite the few bug bites on my legs, I had so much fun on this field trip! If you live around the area and the weather is slightly cooler, I highly recommend visiting if you enjoy being outdoors. Here I included some of my favorite photos from the day.

On our way to the way to the planting site, of course I had to take a close-up of the pink muhly. (a.k.a. fairy floss/cotton candy grass)

That scary blue carnivorous insect…do you see it?

I’m thankful these gigantic birds are caged.

    Very nice pictures, especially those with the "pink muhly", though I don't know what it is! 😉
