Tree Safari... for Kids!

Do you and your kids love active, outdoor fun and learning? Then grab your binos and come on a Tree Safari with Our City Forest! In this dynamic, hour-long learning experience, our tree educators will introduce your family to five different tree species and the benefits that they provide for us. We’ll start at Our City Forest’s Community Nursery, then trek over to the Guadalupe River Park on our TreeMobile to stalk the woody giants in the wild!

For ages 4-10, but friends and siblings welcome. Every child must be accompanied throughout the tour by a parent or guardian.

Space is strictly limited by the number of seats on the TreeMobile, so preregistration is required! First come, first served.
