Baytown Nature Center
6213 Bayway Dr, Baytown, TX 77520
Beneficial or harmful? Scary or shy? Reptiles are one of the most interesting and often misunderstood classifications of animals on Earth. Baytown Nature Center Naturalist, Crissy Butcher leads November’s Nurture Nature Series with a fascinating discussion of these ancient creatures. Learn their characteristics, evolutionary history, and defense mechanisms. Find out if snakes are slimy; if turtles can crawl out of their shells, how alligators, caimans, and crocodiles are different; or if all lizards have legs. Participants will have the chance to observe and touch live examples of three of the four orders of reptiles, including snakes, lizards, alligators, and turtles.
The hands-on, family-oriented series, offered the first Saturday of each month is free with regular admission to the nature center. The popular program is from 10 am-12 noon on the first Saturday of each month, except April, when the nature center hosts its Nurture Nature Festival. Enjoy a fun, education morning; then stay to picnic, bird, hike, fish or just relax – a great way to spend a morning.
