Fall Frolic

Biodiversity Education Center, 367 Freeport Pkwy.

The Biodiversity Education Center (BEC) presents the 3rd annual Fall Frolic, which celebrates nature with hands-on activities and live music along the trail system at Coppell Nature Park. The mile-long nature walk will have eight hands-on activity stations for young explorers. This year’s theme is “I Spy”. Fall Frolickers will have the opportunity to explore the park from an animal’s point of view. Visit each station to experience the far-sighted vision of birds of prey, learn how bats “see” at night, discover the faceted eyesight of insects and more. Families, Scout troops and nature-lovers alike will also be welcomed to help seed the Blackland Prairie and celebrate Arbor Day in the outdoor classroom. 

Since 2019 marks the 5th birthday of the Biodiversity Education Center and the 15th birthday of Coppell Nature Park, the BEC will be teaming up with the Friends of Coppell Nature Park to throw an extra big party! Enjoy a variety of activities and entertainment at this exciting fall event in the trees, including:
- Face Painting
- Crafts
- Live Bluegrass Music
- Wildflower Seed Bombs
- Public Art Unveiling
- Grand Opening of New Nature Explore Play Area
- Family-Friendly Hiking
- Nature-themed treats and giveaways (while supplies last)!
