Thursday, June 17 – Wet n’ Wild

Discover the wildest side of Houston: wetlands! There’s more drama going on in a single puddle than on any soap opera. We’ll explore our wetland habitats at the Arboretum on a hike, then go pond-dipping and get up close and personal with wild wetland critters. Finally, we’ll make Toad Abodes to bring home to help wetland animals in our own backyards.

Thursday, July 22 – Savanna Nights

Forget clubs and bars – on a hot summer night, the savanna is where it’s at! First we’ll make wildflower seed paper so you can bring a little savanna home with you. Then we’ll check out the savanna sunset scene on a hike, use sweep nets to discover who’s hiding in the grass, and set up a “light trap” to lure out some of our wildest nighttime partygoers. You’ll be helping us collect real scientific information about our savanna ecosystem!

Thursday, August 19 – A Walk in the Woods

There’s a whole world of strange and wonderful woodland critters that only emerges after dark. We’ll go on a hunt for nocturnal animals through our woodland, rolling over logs and using special UV lights to find bizarre and beautiful “blacklight wildlife.” You’ll also create one-of-a-kind woodburning artwork to take home for yourself or as a gift.
