Nature Nights are free, family-friendly events filled with exciting explorations of native plants, animals and the ecology of Central Texas. Each evening features interactive presentations, hikes with experts in their fields, and nature crafting for kids of all ages.

The Geology, Fossils & Caves Nature Night showcases what rocks can teach us through layers and fossils, how rainwater moves underground and includes an on-site cave tour.

Full 2019 Nature Night Schedule:

June 6: Arachnids & Insects
What has eight legs and is headed straight for the Wildflower Center? A family of four coming to explore at Nature Nights! Individuals and families of any size are welcome as we kick off the free fun with a safari of all things that crawl, buzz, fly and scuttle.

June 13: Geology, Fossils & Caves
Rocks are some of the greatest storytellers. They show us what came before with layers and fossils, and they shape the world we live in today. Come witness how water moves through our karst landscape and go all in with a cave tour.

June 20: Life on the Prairie
Prairie ecosystems are among the most beautiful, important and threatened in Texas and across the nation. Learn about the wildflowers, tall grasses and deep roots supporting these scenic landscapes and all the critters that call them home.

June 27: Birds of Prey & Reptiles
Feathers, scales, talons and tails. We’re combining two of our most wildly popular Nature Nights into one to bring you creatures of the land and sky; snakes, hawks and owls — oh my!
