Have you enjoyed exploring the great outdoors with your kids?  Here are some more opportunities in the Permian Basin to get out and explore nature.

The Sibley Nature Center:

The Sibley Nature Center celebrates the nature and history of our region through a broad range of educational programs and personal experience. Through programs given at its site of 49 acres in Hogan Park in Midland, Texas, and at schools, meeting rooms, ranches, and private gatherings throughout the region, the Sibley Nature Center seeks to encourage community members to be knowledgeable about the flora, fauna, and history of the region.

I-20 Wildlife Preserve:

The I-20 Wildlife Preserve is a 100-acre riparian forest campus in Midland, Texas. It is a wild space – not a park – managed by a nonprofit organization. The 86-acre urban playa lake is the highlight of the wetlands, floodplain thickets, and prairie grasslands – providing abundant avian, wildlife, and aquatic habitat. The urban playa at the Preserve is a treasured ecotourism destination of regional significance and a science education resource of the Permian Basin.




Most tours and programs take place during the hours that the Museum is open to the public.  Please come by and visit us with your friends and family!
