Nature Workshop – Propagation Station FREE WITH MUSEUM ADMISSION
Saturday, April 22 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
Celebrate Earth Day on the banks of the San Antonio River with eco-friendly programming at the Briscoe! Enjoy hands-on nature lessons during a come-and-go program that features the Nectar Bar and Bat Conservation International, as well as FREE arts and crafts for all ages.
Learn from Certified Texas Master Naturalist Drake White about the propagation of native plants and herbs, their value in nature and their habitat uses. In this Nature Workshop you will gain knowledge on how to grow from cuttings, seed, and root division – AND how to care for your garden. Take this knowledge and leadership skill back to your community and YOU will be “propagating” good nature know-how.
Bat Conservation International with representatives from Bracken Cave will be back at the Briscoe to teach the community about the importance of these furry flying creatures of the night. Learn how these tiny mammals are beneficial to the environment, agriculture and other aspects of everyday life.
Sit a spell and relax with some nature-themed arts and crafts for all ages.
Museum members and children 12 and under, as well as active duty military members, receive FREE admission – and of course, all centenarians, Dolphs, Briscoes and April 23 babies do too in honor of Governor Dolph Briscoe’s 100th Birthday!
