Please feel free to share with us pictures of your LEAF program trees and let us know how they are doing!

Walkthrough Wednesday - River Legacy East Park

Adventure awaits - This week's #WalkthroughWednesday features River Legacy East! Perhaps you've overlooked this park as it often gets lost in the shadow created by River Legacy Park, its much bigger brother to the west. However, this 54-acre park has plenty to offer all on its own! A half-mile hike and bike trail, a picnic area complete with grills, two playgrounds, and sand volleyball courts are some of the amenities you'll find at River Legacy East.
Location: 1601 NE Green Oaks Blvd, 76006

Enjoy hours of fun by making your own bubble snakes!

Here's what you'll need: a water bottle, an old sock, a hair-tie (or rubber band), dish soap, water, a shallow dish, and scissors.

First, cut the bottom off of a water bottle. Next, slip the sock over the opening you just cut out, and secure the sock using a hair-tie or rubber band. Make your bubble solution in a shallow dish by mixing 2 parts dish soap to 1 part water, and take your kiddos outside. Dip the end of the water bottle with the sock into the bubble solution and blow into the top of the bottle. Now you have bubble snakes galore! Watch the snakes float away on a windy day, or see them slowly pop away when they fall to the ground. Share your bubble snakes with us by tagging us and using #NaturallyFun 🐍

Hang in there - the weekend is almost here! 🐍

Did you know Texas is home to over 100 species of snakes? The vast majority are nonvenomous and will not harm humans. Still, if you come across a snake on your summer nature walk, it's best to give them space!
