Education for Youth

After School Nature Explorers Club

The After School Nature Explorers Club is designed for school-age children, 6-12 years old, who are interested in investigating the natural world. Each month, we'll explore a different ecology topic, focusing on our own native plants and animals. We'll make a craft to take home, go on a nature hike, dip-net in the ponds, and get to know the plants and animals of the Bayou City! Hope you can join us for the fun!
