Residents can go wild at Nature Fest
It will be a day of family fun, entertainment, food and educational experiences at Bridgeland's Nature Fest, scheduled 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Saturday, Sept 25, at Oak Meadow Park in the subdivision.
The event is free and open to the public.
The 11,400-acre community will host members from the Katy Prairie Conservancy and Habitat for Humanity-Northwest Harris County for the event.
Armadillos to canines
Animal performances include Twiggy the Waterskiing Squirrel, a birds of prey exhibition, armadillo races, a cockatoo circus show and canine frisbee disc club performance.
Guided hayrides, face painting, pony and camel rides, an exotic petting zoo and arts and crafts will be available for families, said Lona Shipp, Bridgeland marketing manager.
Times for the performances are at www.bridgeland.com/events.
Nature Fest began in 2004 to celebrate the "great outdoors," Shipp said.
"It's been a lot of fun," Shipp said. "We took a lot of precautions when Bridgeland was developed to protect the wildlife and land out here. This event is a nice mix of fun and educational experiences."
Mary Anne Piacentini, Katy Prairie Conservancy executive director, said they will be on hand to lead the hayrides and conduct projects with visitors.
"On the hayride," Piacentini said, "we'll feature trees, wildlife history and the importance of the Katy Prairie. We'll be doing an animal tracking project and giving out information about our upcoming classes and camps."
For a $10 donation, visitors can receive a goodie bag from the Katy Prairie Conservancy.
