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!

August 12: Dragonfly Celebration!

August 12 at 10 a.m. is Sibley Nature Center's Dragonfly Celebration! Nature Club attendees will get a special dragonfly walk around Sibley's Pond. Sibley will provide binoculars, I.D. guides, and plenty of fun. While the kids are having fun on the Nature Club walk, parents are encouraged to go on a dragonfly walk with world-renowned Dragonfly Researcher, John Abbott. You can pick up your child when both walks end at 11:00 a.m., and explore all of the other cool things going on at the Celebration. Drop-off will be at Sibley Nature Center's Pond.

If you don't know where our pond is you can find it on our trail map.


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. Register your child by clicking here.

Moments from past Nature Clubs

This month, Nature Club attendees learned how to keep bees. We got to practice with the real equipment, and learn how bees communicate through smell and dance. 

In June, we learned about camping and the Midland Reporter Telegram was kind enough to come and take some photos for us. You can find the photos here
