Activities for All Age Groups

Saturdays in Nature

On the second Saturday of each month (September-May), Houston Audubon Docents will lead a hands-on science program for families to participate in together. From building bird feeders to identifying backyard bugs, naturalists of all ages will enjoy quality time outdoors, creative art projects, guided nature walks, and hands on fun!

The Saturdays in Nature program is designed for families and individuals. Please do NOT bring your scout troop, class, play group, etc. to this program as a group activity. Thanks!
