Come out and enjoy a day of fun outdoor activities, exploration, and learn about conservation.
Activities begin with a fun run to Greer Island, followed by guided hikes, hayrides, and canoe rides along the Trinity River. Grab a meal at one of the food trucks and wrap up the day assisting with a BioBlitz.
Each year students get a break from school. During these times, we provide programs for the entire family. Some of our programs during the holidays can include specialty hikes, canoeing, and our famous Bison Feeding Hayrides. Our holiday break activities allow the family to experience the outdoor world and learn about the many facets that makes nature so special and important.
October marks the coming of our fun family event, Trails and Treats. For those of you who have attended in the past, you can expect a good time. Activities include seeing all the costumes, playing games, hiking for treats, and learning about wildlife at the Nature Center. For those attending for the first time, this event is not just about receiving candy and taking in all of the activities, but also an opportunity to learn about the Nature Center and see how you can utilize us for your outdoor education and recreational needs. Join us and learn about our local wildlife, particularly the animals that are adapted to a nocturnal lifestyle.
Summer is time for Summer Natural History Adventures! Youth that have completed K-5 can join us for a week long camp exploring the Nature Center. Hands on and age appropriate activites await your adventurer.
