Nature Club 2017!

Natural Hobbies

We all want to spend more time outdoors, but the same nature walk can get boring after a while. Nature Club 2017 explores different hobbies you can do when in the natural world. Rock hunting, birding, camping, and more will be covered over the 9 weeks of Nature Club. On the second Saturday of each month we will cover the tools of the trade, practice our new hobby, and discover places in Texas where you can go to try out your new hobby on your own!

March Nature Club:

March 11: Maps, Compass, and Geocaching

Part three of our continuing Nature Hobby Series

Taking part in a natural hobby is enjoyable, and usually pretty engrossing. Sometimes you might look up from chasing a butterfly or frog and realize that you are far from the trail you began on. It is then that knowing how to use a map and compass becomes a valuable tool for any naturalist. We will also learn how we can take part in modern treasure hunts with GPS devices! This nature club will be fun, and may save your life one day.

Nature Club is for K – 3rd grade children, and is $5 for members and $8 for non-members. Advanced registration is required. Space is limited to a maximum of 15 students, Click here to register for March Nature Club.

Don't wait! Reserve your child's spot today!

Moments from past Nature Clubs

In January we had a great time pressing plants and mounting them on paper. We even turned these pressed plants into some fun art projects. Check out the pictures below.

We also have some pictures from out February Nature Club where we used rock hammers, and made mineral jewelry!
