Southern Exposures at Quinta Mazatlan

Date: Saturday, November 16, 2019 @ 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Venue: Qunita Mazatlan
Address: 600 Sunset Drive, McAllen, TX 78516

Quinta Mazatlan is now an urban sanctuary working to enrich people’s lives by sharing knowledge about birds, plants, and environmental stewardship in South Texas. Quinta Mazatlan and its WBC partners promote birding and conservation of Valley habitat, especially as it benefits numerous avian residents and neo-tropical migrants.

Southern Exposures provides a unique opportunity for youth and their families to share the experience of nature up close and personal. As a strategic outdoor education program, Southern Exposures actively connects children with their natural environment, teaches them about the nature around them, while endowing them with the tools, photography instruction and art concepts necessary to engage their imagination and express themselves creatively. All workshops are lead by Ruth Hoyt.
