Sibley welcomes residents from Rock House Midland for a Center and Trail Tour
Yes, there is still nature even in February. Come find it on a fun and informative hike with Education Coordinator, Jeremy Clothier. Dress warmly, and binoculars are provided. This is a FREE trail walk for all ages.
Antarctica is 13,000 miles from the nearest mesquite tree, but an unexpected adventure to the “land of fire and ice” for author/pilot Nancy Robinson Masters had an incredible impact on her passion for West Texas, our natural resources, and our future. Nancy grew up on a dry-land cotton farm in Jones County never dreaming her “higher education” as an airplane pilot would take her literally to the bottom of the world as a guest of the National Science Foundation. She returned from Antarctica committed to sharing what she experienced that has made her an unabashed patriot presenting hundreds of programs for schools, civic, and business organizations on the power of free people to freely read, write, and share their experiences to encourage others to preserve the past for the future of West Texas.
Grab your mukluks and goggles and let Nancy take you on a fantastic, fun adventure that will leave you naturally informed and inspired! From seeing erupting volcanoes to experiencing“water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink” (The Rime of the Ancient Mariner), it will give you a whole new appreciation for all things West Texas, even mesquite trees!
This is a FREE program, and tea and cookies will be provided
A mysterious creature is causing trouble at Sibley Nature Center! Things get moved around, trash is turned over, and food mysteriously disappears. No one at Sibley has been able to catch this creature, but things will change this Saturday! We will take to the trails to find tracks, scat, fur, and even use a trail cam to catch this creature. Join us and you might go down in history as the one who discovered Bigfoot.
Nature Club is designed for K-3rd grade students and is $5 for members and $8 for non-members.
Every Texas History Month Sibley is visited by the Spirit of West Texas who teaches us lessons from Texas's past. We always learn so much from these visits that we want to share them with 3rd-5th graders in Midland and Odessa.
Campers follow clues left by the Spirit of West Texas to discover a week of spinning wool, cooking over campfires, whittling toys, and learning how Texas History still helps us today.
Join the Llano Estacado Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalists for their monthly meeting at Sibley Nature Center.
