Sprinkler Day @ Nature Discovery Center
Sep 9 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
School may have started, but here in Texas our summer heat is not quite over yet. Bring your children to the Center to cool off with a favorite summer passtime – running through sprinklers! The Center’s front lawn, Pecan Grove, will be set up with sprinklers and kiddie pools of water and water toys for a refreshing morning of water play! Kids should bring or wear their bathing suit and should bring a towel and a change of clothes. Some kids may prefer wearing water shoes on wet grass.
