we welcome in conversation… Lynnsey Dohmen, educator for the EcoStation at the Childrens Museum, Houston. www.cmhouston.org/ecostation
“EcoStation is an active, outdoor/indoor environmental exhibit where visitors engage in ecological studies and explore environmental issues by visiting a native plant garden, a woodland area, the bayou table, the pond, and a research pavilion. Through these and several other exhibit areas, visitors can participate in diverse hands-on activities such as stream bed creation, insect collecting, tree rubbings, footprint identification, and more!
Visitors may also participate in always-changing programming that includes nature journals, water quality testing, decomposition bservations, soil type explorations, home environmental awareness inventory logs, bird feeders and many more activities that can be used in the exhibit areas or even taken home for further backyard experiences!
