All events on the www.freefuninaustin.com calendar are subject to change. Please confirm details on the event website.
The Naturalist Workshop is a perfect place to explore the natural world. Get a close-up view through microscopes and magnifying glasses, use a balance to check and compare objects’ weights and identify your finds with field guides and touchable specimens.
If you’re a collector of natural objects, you’ll want to check out the workshop’s Trade Counter. Bring your favorite rock, seedpod, shell or other cool natural item and earn points for what you know and learn about it. Use the points to trade for new treasures, like sparkling minerals, exotic sea shells, animal bones, fossils, polished rocks and much more.
You can also earn points to use at the Trade Counter if you correctly identify this month's mystery object. Come in to see it in person and make a guess!
The Naturalist Workshop is found in the Visitor’s Pavilion. For more information call 512-974-3888. The Trade Counter is open Wednesday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
