Adaptation Artistry

10:00a to 12:00p

Lisa Cole
(210) 688-9055, x2010

How do spotted fur, big ears, long tails, and other special features help animals survive in a challenging environment?

Examine the pelts and skulls of a variety of mammals who live in Government Canyon, and learn about the amazing ways in which they are adapted to hide from danger, find food, and handle extreme temperatures. Then use craft supplies to design a well-adapted animal species of your own imagination. 

All ages welcome. Minors must be accompanied by their parent or legal guardian. No pets, please.

Registration is NOT required. Though the activity is free, entrance fees to the Natural Area do apply. We often fill to capacity. To ensure entrance and save time at the Fee Booth, please pre-purchase and print out a day pass. Meet in the Amphitheater. Lot C will have the closest parking.  

This is a public program intended for individuals or families. If you would like to bring a group for a program at Government Canyon, please contact the Park Interpreter at to schedule at a different time. 

Dress for time outdoors, in layers that can be added or removed as the weather changes. Comfortable shoes, sunscreen, and a hat are recommended. Bring a water bottle for each person.

This program is weather-dependent and subject to cancellation. Check trail conditions by calling GCSNA's main office at 210-688-9055, or go to the GCSNA webpage, Instagram, or Facebook.
