The Neotropical Bird Sanctuary is owned by the Town of Quintana and the Gulf Coast Bird Observatory (GCBO). It opened in 1994 with the Town's purchase of a small tract of land across from the Town Hall and a grant through Partners in Flight. The sanctuary is a popular birding spot with trails, ponds and park benches and allows easy access and close viewing of migratory birds.
Xeriscape Park - just down the road from the sanctuary, has a nature trail, hummingbird garden, and a wooden bridge crossing an inlet from the Intracoastal Canal. Through the joint efforts of Freeport LNG, the Town of Quintana and several local conservation groups, the park is now 2.55 acres in size. The park sports footpaths, water features, benches, a parking area, planted palm trees, a footbridge and other features to attract both neotropical birds and visitors.
