Fall 2016 Events
Texas Native Plant Week – October 16-22
As Lady Bird Johnson said, native plants "give us a sense of where we are in this great land of ours." We will celebrate native plants of our region with special community programs, hikes and activities all week long. Keep an eye on the website for details!
Celebration of Texas Trees – November 4
Join the Center’s arborists on a walk through the Texas Arboretum. Hear stories of historical Texas oaks as you circle the Hall of Heroes. Learn about the native trees of Texas and how to properly plant them from the experts. Friday, 10 – 11:30 a.m.
Texas Tree Climb – November 5
Celebrate Texas Arbor Day by climbing high into the treetops using harnesses, ropes, and helmets, just like the arborists at the Wildflower Center. See the world from a bird’s eye view and explore a tree canopy among the branches. Trained experts will provide instruction and equipment. Both children (ages 7+) and adults are welcome to climb. Saturday, 9 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Climbing is free with admission.
Moonlight Hike – November 14
See the beauty of the gardens by moonlight, listen for coyotes howling, and perhaps catch a glimpse of an owl in flight during this evening hike through the gardens and Arboretum. In addition, learn about the history of the Wildflower Center, our work and our mission. Participants are welcome to bring (red light) flashlights. Monday from 7-9 p.m. Ages: 16 and older. Fee: $15.00.
