Family Naturalist Program starts at Camp Bayou

It's time again to learn about the wildlife in our community and, specifically, to see how the Camp Bayou critters are doing since last season. Each week's focus is on a particular theme, with a short classroom portion, a longer hands-on segment and a example stewardship activity which everyone can do.
Program is free and it is not necessary to register although it is appreciated.
