Come and see what these native seeds look like, how to clean them, and take some home. Learn about prairie plants and seeds from KPC experts.   KPC is providing pizza!

Snakes

Laura and Adrian Berg of Cross Bone Corns will present on Snakes of Texas.  Educating people about the snakes that are indigenous to Texas is a passion at Crossbone Corns. We feel that if people understand the native wildlife, they are more likely to respect it. That respect makes nature safer for the animals and people involved.

Plus, we’ll have a Moth Night event out at Deer Park Prairie!
