Family Conservation Day

April 10 2021 from 9:00 am 12:00 pm


FREE, no registration necessary

All Ages

Conservation is a large part of the Arboretum’s mission to maintain our wonderful 155 acres of native Houston habitats. Bring your family for a day of hands-on, dirt-digging fun. This is an open house, come and go, event. We will have Naturalists and Conservationists on site providing instruction and answering all of your questions.

The event will be spread out on the Arboretum grounds to highlight our native habitats and the conservation efforts that go into making our trails safe for plants, animals, and humans! Each one of our interpretive Field Stations will be a location to ask questions, learn, and participate in activities.

Join us at the:

  1. Nature Center – learn more about the event and the Houston Arboretum
  2. Wetland Field Station – learn about our freshwater creatures and test our water quality
  3. Woodland Field Station – learn how to identify invasive species and help us remove Privet
  4. Prairie Field Station – learn to be a Conservationist and Naturalist from home and collect data
  5. Savanna Field Station – learn about succession and species diversity while seeding the savanna
  6. Ravine Field Station – learn to be an environmental steward on a Staff-guided hike in the shade
