The Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge has several family programs, classes and activities this month. Take a hike led by a naturalist to learn about the wildlife, or kids age 5 and up can view critters while touring a stretch of the West Fork of the Trinity River in canoes. Throughout July, for ages 3-7 and parents, Nature KIDS meets to look for coldblooded animals on a short walk and to feed some of those animals at the visitor center. Preschoolers and parents can join the Discovery Club to learn about butterflies. And there's even a Canoe Fest for age 5 and up (with their parents) on the waters around Greer Island. Several of the programs are free with a membership or with paid admission, and some require registration. Check the website for pricing.
