Today the tallgrass prairies of Texas are very rare. Less than 1% of the original 20 million acres of Texas’ beautiful tallgrass prairie remains and losses are still occurring to plowing, improper overgrazing, and development.
Explore history, art and nature at the century old studio of Elisabet Ney for a summer camp experience filled with learning and fun! Children will create clay projects, investigate creek science, practice pioneer skills and learn all about the history at the Ney.
Most activities are outdoors and are designed to help deepen your child’s awareness of and sensitivity to nature and the creative arts and to nurture your child’s connections to history. Please sign up soon as space is limited to 12 children per session.
