As a special treat, members of the Wildlife Center of Texas will be on hand with live owls just in case you miss spotting them in the forest.
After the presentation, families will enjoy a hike through the woods, looking and listening for owls and other creatures that lurk in the darkness.

Jaime has a Master of Education in Science Education and a BS in Biology, both from the University of Houston, serves as the President of the Coastal Prairie Partnership, and is a member of the Texas Children in Nature Coalition Steering Committee.
