Nature Center Makes Creepy Critters Fun
Halloween is just around the corner and the popular holiday brings to mind those creepy, crawly critters that are so often feared or misunderstood. The Baytown Nature Center, 6213 Bayway Drive, continues its monthly Nurture Nature Series with a special presentation giving visitors a chance to get to know bats, snakes, spiders, millipedes and insects on Saturday, October 6 at 10 am.
BNC Naturalist, Crissy Butcher introduces visitors to these fascinating “Creepy Critters.” The biggest surprise may be discovering how interesting and beneficial these creatures really are.
The monthly nature program gives visitors the opportunity to learn about many facets of natural history. In order to safeguard our natural world and its inhabitants we must first understand the purpose and importance of each component. With understanding comes appreciation for the role each plays; understanding and appreciation lead to protection.
The Nurture Nature Series is held the first Saturday of each month from 10 –11 am. The program is free with regular admission of $3 for adults and children 13 and older. Next month’s Nurture Nature offering is the free, annual Nurture Nature Festival on November 3, from 10 am – 4 pm.
