Adults and Children Alike Will Find Entertaining Activities, Including a Bike Ride
In July, the Katy Prairie Conservancy (KPC) presents two fun events for various age groups, including Unplugged Adventure: Sunset Bike Ride and Ranger Trek: Summer Soundtrack. The Sunset Bike Ride will interest cyclists, while Ranger Trek: Summer Soundtrack focuses on wildlife.
Sunset Bike Ride: July 9 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Bring your bike out for an evening range ride on the historic Warren Ranch. This leisurely ride along ranch roads will be fun for all ages. As the sun goes down, watch the prairie come alive – you might even hear an owl or two. Audience: All Ages. Cost: $5 per person.
Summer Soundtrack: July 23 from 8:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. at Indiangrass Preserve. Join KPC Rangers on a hike of discovery as we explore the sounds and sights of the summer prairie. We’ll be listening for colorful migratory birds, breeding frogs, and melodic katydids. Audience: All ages. Cost: Free.
“We know it’s very hot in July, but that’s no reason not to enjoy our events on the Katy Prairie,” says Mary Anne Piacentini, KPC’s Executive Director. “The activities are for all ages and held in the morning or evening hours. It’s also a bit cooler on the prairie than in the city, so we hope folks will come and check us out.”
All events require advance registration on katyprairie.org. Click the “Visit” tab to find “Events.” Participants are encouraged to bring water, cameras, binoculars, and snacks, if desired.
