Rocks Alive! A free, outdoor, come-and-go event for all ages at Acton Nature Center, Sept. 30, 10am-2pm.
What’s in a rock that sustains life? And soil – why do we need it? How about water, air, and even the sun? Discover why life would not exist were it not for the physical foundations on which it relies. Interact with exhibitors to get the inside scoop on how rocks, soil, water (surface and underground), and climate/weather shape and support Texas landscapes and ecosystems. Get a peek at what’s up with our solar system and sun – two upcoming solar eclipses: October annular eclipse and April 2024 total eclipse, both occurring over Texas! See what meteorites look like and what they can tell us about our Earth. And for the kiddos – fun and educational activities: finding a fossil, making and eating a rock, creating pictures with pebbles, and building a mini ecosystem. Hope to see you there!
