Educational Programs for Adults

Monday Morning Gardening –  Join Park Steward Mary Ann Beauchemin and a group of volunteers for a morning of gardening in the park and learn about gardening with natives while you help care for the park.

Birding in the Park – Information about our guided birding walks, special birding events and opportunities, and birding resources.

Tree Identification Walks – Master Naturalist and tree lover Jim McKee leads Monthly Saturday morning walks in the park (First Saturday of the month, September through May).  He not only  teaches you to identify trees, but also gives historical facts and other details of tree biology.

Lectures & Workshops – We offer occasional evening lectures for adults during the school year, and family friendly Nature Nights in the summer months.  We also have teacher training workshops for preschool and elementary aged teachers.

Nature Field Trips – Join us for a wildlife watching field trip. Anuhuac and High Island are two stops on our popular annual Spring Migration Field Trip.  We've added an additional trip in the fall to Smith Point Hawk Watch.  And Dr. Cin-Ty Lee has generously offered some Shorebird Workshops with Lecture and Field Trip components in the past.  Check out our Event Calendar for these special opportunities to watch wildlife! 

Wildlife Watching – Resources for watching wildlife in Russ Pitman Park and your own back yard. Follow this link for information about what to do if you’ve found an orphaned or injured animal as well. 

Our Park After Dark program has been a great success. Click here to learn about upcoming night walks.

Check out our Swift Night Out Events page for family friendly swift watching in August/September!


Bird watchers enjoy a Nature Discovery Center adult field trip to the coast during spring migration.
