In case of rain, we have a very large covered pavilion and will set up our activities and food there.
Here’s your opportunity to visit the Upper Highland Lakes Nature Center and become familiar with our outreach capabilities.
We’ve hosted well over a thousand guests in organized groups during our start-up phase. In addition to the topics listed above, we have included customized activities specifically designed to meet scout badge, core competency, TEKS and STEM requirements.
Our nature smart volunteers (mostly Master Naturalists and Master Gardeners) bring their knowledge and love of nature to each and every event.
If you plan to bring 10 or more folks to our Open House or have any questions, please use the “contact us” form to send us an email.
