Get yourself ready for some amazing activities at the Gateway Ranch and Outdoor Education Center THIS FALL!!!
You will learn the strategies used by Stewards of the Land to grow a sustainable native habitat.
Adventures – Each one is a 2-3-hour program held at the Gateway Ranch and Outdoor Education Center and is FREE and open to the public!
This Fall we will be pushing forward to restore the native vegetation and habitat. Learn the importance of housing for native wildlife by constructing your own shelter. Explore the needs of native plants in their habitat. Plant seedlings and seeds appropriately to conserve what little water there will be during the year for the vegetation. Replenish the nursery with seed planting. Take a hike into Herngt “Aki” Preserve to gather Live Oak acorns to germinate during the spring and plant in the Fall of 2020.
