Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center Homeschool Days

The Audubon is hosting homeschool days on March 22, April 25, or May 12 from 10am-1:30pm.  These educational days are geared toward homeschool groups and families as well as smaller schools (such as charter and private schools) that are unable to meet our minimum requirement of 25 students for field trips.

This is an environmental field trip focused on the natural world and features a guided nature hike, special activities and an opportunity to learn with others in the great outdoors. Students will experience hands-on exploration and learning in nature guided by dedicated educators.

Please arrive 15-20 minutes early to allow for time to check-in.

A lunch break is provided at our picnic tables in Nature Play. Please pack a lunch and dress for the outdoors. In the case of inclement weather, lunch and activities will be moved indoors.

Kids ages 3 and up are $10 each. Adults and children ages 2 and under are free.

Prepayment required at least 5 days before program date.

Texas Tulip Farm is now open

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to share that the Texas Tulip farm is now open.  We went last year on a Thursday and had such a great experience.  It wasn’t busy and we really got to take our time looking at all the different tulip varieties and then we got to cut and create a beautiful bouquet.  Oh, and what better place than to also take great pics of the kiddos.  We were there for about an hour and half total.  We brought our own cutters but they provide a basket. At the end they wrap your flowers for the trip to home.  Now I heard the place is crazy on the weekends, so I would recommend trying this for a weekday trip.  It would also be great to pack a lunch!
