Come out and enjoy a day of fun outdoor activities, exploration, and conservation.
The day’s activities begin with a fun run to Greer Island, followed by guided hikes, hayrides, and canoe rides on the Trinity River. Grab a meal at one of the food trucks and wrap up the day assisting with the BioBlitz.
In a typical school year schedule, students have breaks for the holidays. During these times we provide programs the entire family can come out and enjoy. 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 come in the past, you know to expect a good time which includes 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 for you 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.
During the summer break allow us to take your children on adventures and teach them about the wildlife and plants at the Nature Center. Week long camps open for students entering 1st – 8th grade, single half day camps open for students entering Kindergarten.
