Austin Science And Nature Center

My son and I set aside time every week to get outside and explore the natural world.  We’ve been looking at plants, tracks, rocks, and other things that he can see, smell and touch.  Then we go to the Austin Science And Nature Center, where he can get points for the things he discovers.  The points can then be used to trade for other natural items that others have brought in.

If you’re a collector of natural objects, you’ll want to check out the Workshop’s Trade Counter. Bring your favorite rock, seedpod, shell or other cool natural item and earn points for it plus what you know and learn about it. Use the points to trade for new treasures like sparkling minerals, exotic sea shells, animal bones, fossils, polished rocks and much more.

It’s a great program and it gets him excited about nature, which is the whole goal at his age.

Visit the naturalist workshop and trade counter here.
