This fall Travis Audubon is excited to begin a new partnership with Westcave Outdoor Discovery Center! Through a new after school program, 4th and 5th graders from Sims and Ortega Elementary Schools have been visiting our Blair Woods Preserve once a week to learn about the natural world. Recently the City of Austin Park Rangers dropped by with some cold-blooded friends to talk about reptiles and amphibians. The kids had a blast getting up close and personal with these scaly creatures, and some even conquered their own personal fears for a chance to pet a snake! We are looking forward to more exciting experiences out at Blair Woods with these amazing kids, and we can’t wait to see what they’ll discover next!
Interested in seeing Blair Woods for yourself? The preserve is open daily to the public. Click here to learn more about visiting Blair Woods and upcoming events!
Our last Family Nature Day of the year will take place November 18. The theme will be Wildlife!
