The John Paul Landing Environmental Education Center is just a 3-minute drive from where Katy ISD plans to build their newest junior high and high school at 25747 Longenbaugh Road. As the Katy-area continues to expand north, this center will prove to be a great benefit to promote nature and time outside to many families.



The Center is inside a 865-acre park with several permanent displays, as well as games and activities for all to enjoy.


Families can compare their “wingspan” to that of local birds, explore the Discovery Room, or take part in many nature-related programs.


Multiple displays offer a glimpse into eco-regions of Texas such as Katy, local watersheds, and layers of the lake.
