Family Opportunities

Are you ready to get outside and explore nature? Register your family for these awesome summer programs! We will play, explore,
learn, and grow, both at the Zoo and at local natural spaces in Houston. We can’t wait to see you and your family at our next event!

Family Nature Club

Family Nature Club is an opportunity for families to get outside together and explore nature! Each program takes place at various parks and nature centers around Houston, and is a great chance to find a new hangout for your herd. Meet like minded families, and know that you’re providing your little ones meaningful opportunities for exploration and play.

Benefits of connecting your family to nature include:

  • Happier, more self-confident, and creative children
  • Stronger family ties
  • Increased sense of wonder and awe for nature close to home
  • Opportunity to follow children’s lead and let them direct the outing
