Houston's 2nd annual Free, Family-Oriented Festival of the Outdoors
HOUSTON —At a time when people in big cities are becoming increasingly disconnected from the world of nature and the outdoors, Take Me Outdoors Houston on Oct. 2 at Discovery Green will offer Houston's 2nd annual free, family-oriented festival of the outdoors.
Exhibitors will provide hands-on activities, booths and opportunities to engage audiences who haven't ever or don't often get exposure to the great outdoors – especially the resources located right in Houston's big backyard.
"By introducing Texans, especially urban adults and kids, to outdoor recreation, our woods and waters and natural places become more relevant and important to them," said Heidi Rao, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department hunter education specialist in Houston. "We believe recreation leads to conservation. If they're out there enjoying the natural world, they come to care about it and finally to care for it."
Take Me Outdoors Houston will take place from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Sat. Oct. 2 at Discovery Green, a 12-acre park created by a public/private partnership between the City of Houston and the non-profit Discovery Green Conservancy. The park's mission is to provide a beautiful, urban green space in the heart of Houston that serves as a village green for the city. It is located across Avenida de las Americas from the George R. Brown Convention Center and the Hilton Americas Hotel, sitting between the Toyota Center and Minute Maid Park. Since the park opened in April 2008, it has welcomed more than 1 million visitors and hosted more than 800 public and private events.
Take Me Outdoors Houston will consist of a variety of exhibitors clustered in topical zones.
The Nature & Environmental Zone will include the TPWD State Parks Division, TPWD Texas Outdoor Family Program, Houston Zoo & Zoomobile, Katy Prairie Conservancy, Armand Bayou Nature Center, Jesse Jones Park and Nature Center, Houston Sierra Club, Houston Audubon Society, Wetlands Center and Baytown Nature Center, Texas Coastal Watershed Program, Student Conservation Association, Friends of Sheldon Lake State Park, and 4-H.
The Hunting & Wildlife Conservation Zone will include the TPWD Hunter Education Program, TPWD Wildlife Division, Houston Gulf Coast Safari Club International, and Laser Shot Shooting Simulator.
The Fishing & Aquatic Conservation Zone will include the TPWD Coastal Fisheries Division, Buffalo Bayou Partnership, and Landry's Downtown Aquarium in Houston.
There will also be two educational demonstrations of live hawks and other raptors in flight by master falconer John Karger of "Last Chance Forever – the Bird of Prey Conservancy" based in San Antonio, sponsored by Houston Gulf Coast SCI.
The Houston Grand Opera will also present the "Butterfly Migration" on stage for two shows.
