Description

Looking to add some nature to your Saturdays this Fall? Come on out to the Bob Jones Nature Center to catch one of our Fall Lectures led by local experts in the natural sciences and sustainability fields. We will cover topics like “how to make your yard more pollinator-friendly” “what to do to launch a career in the ever-evolving field of sustainability”, and “how to become a better birder”.

While our lectures are aimed at teens and adults, we will have supervised activities set up separately for children 4 and up, should you wish to bring them. Space is limited so please let us know when you register if you are planning to bring your little ones.


November: Our Wintering Birds, with Dr. Ray Chancellor

Come join Dr. Ray Chancellor as he discusses how the winter months can be filled with over 150 species of birds that can be enjoyed even on the coldest days. Learn what can be seen when walking the many trails in our local park lands. Learn the key species to look for and how best to attract them to your own back yard. If you are a beginning birder or an experienced one, you will find the program just for you.

Dr. Chancellor, a Southlake naturalist/ecologist, has observed and photographed birds in Southlake continuously for the past 24 years. Prior to that, he conducted bird banding studies for 25 years. As a naturalist, his presentation will focus on the local ecosystem and how you can use the knowledge of it to create a better wildlife backyard habitat or simply to better enjoy the local trails. His will use his photographs taken locally to highlight the beauty and wonder found around the Lake Grapevine area.

Want to bring the whole family? We will have supervised bird-themed crafts and activities set up separately for kids 4 and up.
