Region: Coastal Plain

Topics: Biology, Chemistry, Ecology, Science, Education, Nature Center, Park


Ms. Ginzbarg worked for a number of years as a grade school science teacher, but is perhaps best known for her work organizing the political support and financial backing to create the Armand Bayou Nature Center, an 1800-acre preserve and education facility east of Houston which comprises coastal prairie, forest, stream, and estuarial habitats, as well as a historical recreation of an early working farm.  In subsequent years, she has drawn together the people, land and resources to create the Nature Discovery Center in an urban residential part of southwest Houston. The Nature Discovery Center offers innovative, hands-on training to teach children about the natural world around them.
