for life-long learners
The Houston Arboretum & Nature Center encourages you to never stop learning and have fun while you do it! Engage with nature at your own speed, whether you’re an early-morning birder, a wildlife gardener, a hands-on crafter, a wild gourmet, or an explorer who wants to experience the Arboretum after dark.
The Arboretum offers classes to help you see nature from a new angle, from using natural materials for painting to building your own nature journal.
The Arboretum offers special nature-inspired cooking and tasting classes for adults to learn, sip, and mingle using ingredients from the wild, your garden, and local producers.
From active walking and yoga to gentle mindfulness and meditation, the Arboretum offers a calm, green refuge from the stress of urban life.
Explore Houston’s wild side through programs on birding, ecology, and natural history. Offerings range from presentations and nature outings to happy hour-style social events perfect for a unique date night.
