“An ever-changing showcase of diversity that spans over 300 acres of woodland sanctuary,” Mercer Botanic Gardens is home to an abundance of native plants and wildlife. Jesse Jones Park and Nature Center is a 312-acre nature preserve along the banks of Spring Creek. An Akokisa Indian Village and a 1930’s homestead at the park offer visitors a step back in time. The group will tour both parks and catch a glimpse of some of the greenspace in Harris County Precinct 4. Advance registration required. This trip is full.
