Activities for All Age Groups

Saturdays in Nature

On the fourth Saturday of each month (September-May), Houston Audubon Docents lead a hands-on science program for families to participate in together. From building bird feeders to identifying backyard bugs, naturalists of all ages enjoy quality time outdoors, creative art projects, guided nature walks, and hands on fun! Please note that in November and December, we'll meet on the third Saturday.

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!
