Welcome Explorers! In this first class, we will develop the skills you will need to go out and explore your world.

Learn everything from how to use binoculars and cast a fishing pole, to tying knots and making your own DIY bird feeder! By the end of the event, you will walk away a bonafide Texas explorer that’s ready to go out and observe the natural world.
