October 4th: “Wings of Color”- Join us for an up close look at some of our amazing birds with one of our Rainforest Biologists. Look at the different aspects and characteristics behind the species and what makes them so special and unique. After the keeper chat and seeing how different each bird species is in their own way, try painting yourself as a bird. Would you be an eagle soaring high, a macaw high in the trees of the rainforest or a clumsy penguin in the frigid arctic temperatures?

Monthly Growing Together At Moody Gardens
