Want to know what’s happening around town? You’re at the right place! We love helping families find the perfect activities for getting out with each other and for connecting with our community.
Plan a day of summertime fun for the family! Come to Bellingrath Gardens and Home on Wednesday, June 13, for Kids Gulf Discovery Day, an opportunity for children of all ages to learn about the wildlife and ecology of the Gulf Coast. A wide variety of environmental organizations will be on hand for activities and demonstrations from 9 a.m. to noon. Scientists from the Dauphin Island Sea Lab will introduce children to the creatures of Mobile Bay, and the Environmental Studies Center will present an exciting Raptor Road Show on the Great Lawn, featuring rehabilitated hawks, owls and other birds of prey. Guests may also take a 45-minute guided cruise along the beautiful Fowl River with our friends from Wild Native Delta Safaris! Cruise times are 9:30, 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., weather permitting. Fees are $9 for adults and $6 for children. Space is limited and reservations are required for the cruise; to register, call 251-459-8864.
Bring the kids out to Bienville Square for summertime fun and enjoy live entertainment, arts and crafts and visits from The Dauphin Island Sea Lab, the Mobile Police and Fire-Rescue Departments and much more!
Join Amanda for monthly presentations on the second Thursday of each month. Amanda will present on topics and/or lead groups on collection tours around the grounds and discuss the plants we have in bloom right now. She will share her best growing tips and if anyone can stump her on ‘Name That Plant’ — we will award a free plant to the stumper! Should be fun!
Join artist Jaime Lee and other guest presenters, to explore and create unique projects using different art forms each week.
