- Nature Discovery, for campers entering Kindergarten & grade 1
We will use our five senses to explore the wonders of the world of nature around us. Come to the canyon to listen to the songs of birds, feel the smooth stones in the creek, look for evidence of animal homes, smell the wildflowers, and taste an edible insect dipped in local honey! We’ll hike, create nature art, build a nest, search for fruit, seeds, & pods, hunt for fossils, and enjoy countless outdoor discoveries every day.
- Canyon Eco-Explorers, for campers entering grades 2 & 3
Texas is an amazing natural place. We’ll explore the plants and animals of our state – specifically the unique animals and unusual plants that live right here in our north Texas home. We’ll take daily expeditions, nature journal, watch birds, create nature art, learn how the pioneers used the plants of our area, build a fort, and explore the life in the canyon.
The Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center is brand new and just opening this summer. But as with all Audubon properties, you know it will be a great place to explore the great outdoors.
