Join Bridgeland on Saturday, April 27 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. when the 16th Annual Nature Fest turns Oak Meadow Park into a wilderness wonderland. Are you brave enough to come face to face with a fire salamander? touch a tarantula? or a tawny owl? Spend the day outdoors learning about some of the world’s most fascinating creatures and the importance of preserving their natural environment. The day will be filled with experiences to heighten all five senses for one wild adventure!

This year’s headline act is YouTube sensation and Emmy Award-winning Brave Wilderness host Coyote Peterson. His videos have been viewed over 5 billion times worldwide making Brave Wilderness the largest wildlife brand in the digital space. For the past 10 years, Peterson has shared stories about some of our planet’s most misunderstood creatures. On April 27, he’ll bring the expedition to Nature Festgoers along with some of the planet’s unique animals, sharing his love and passion for wildlife and everything that is outdoors, while inspiring conservation of our planet for current and future generations.

In addition to our headline act, you’ll find other stage performances and plenty of family-friendly activities for a day full of fun. Make a plan to see it all by consulting our stage schedule that includes learning about crocodiles and snakes. You’ll find activities for inquisitive minds such as a petting zoo, craft area, Touch-a-Truck exhibit and nature exhibitors’ area. More action-packed activities include: a kids’ inflatable zone, outdoor laser tag, face painting, balloon art, and roaming entertainment, and don’t forget to capture a memory at the animal encounter photo op. An assortment of food trucks will be on site with a variety of foods from savory to sweet to fuel you through the day.

Admission is free, but a few activities will require a small fee. All proceeds from these activities will be donated to Cy-Hope, a local organization dedicated to bringing hope and opportunity to every child in the Cy-Fair area. Activity ticket booths, vendors and food trucks will be able to accept cash or cards, however, on-site ATMs will not be available.
