(210) 688-9055, x2010

Plants can’t move quickly by themselves, so they harness the wind and wildlife to find new growing locations for their seeds.

Join a ranger to examine native plant seeds and learn about wind riders, buried treasures, hitchhikers, and more. We’ll walk about 1.25 miles to check all the boxes on our plant adaptation scavenger hunt. We may even plant a few seeds of our own.

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

This activity meets at the Amphitheater, nearest parking is in Lot C .

Registration is NOT required for this activity. Though the event 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. There is often a line at the fee booth; arrive early to get to your activity on time.

Dress for hiking outdoors. Comfortable shoes, sunscreen, bug spray and a hat are recommended. Bring at least 2 liters of water per person and a snack.
