Channel your inner artist with our Nature in the Arts series! Visit us at Ambler to walk in the woods and create a personalized field guide of your observations. We are partnering with Lubeznik Center for the Arts and Tryon Farm Institute to offer this event.

Nature in the Arts is a family-friendly program offered by Shirley Heinze Land Trust connecting the art community and people to nature. We encourage individuals and families of all backgrounds and ages to participate. Pets are welcome, too! Please be sure to pick up after them and keep on a leash. Snacks, water, and portable restrooms will be available at this event.

Here’s how to participate:

  1. Visit Ambler Flatwoods anytime between 11am and 1pm CDT to take a nature walk. You’ll learn about the native plants that make Ambler special!
  2. Afterwards, stop by Tryon Farm and create your own field guide with the help of Lubeznik Center for the Arts.
