H-E-B Free First Sunday:
Journey Into Big Bend


May 1, 2016 12:00pm - 5:00pm

Be transported to Big Bend with hands-on activities that explore the people, plants and places of the park.

Enjoy FREE exhibition admission all day during H-E-B Free First Sundays, held the first Sunday of every month. Families can explore the Story of Texas through three floors of exhibitions that showcase artifacts from around the state. Special family programs from 12-3 p.m. combine art creation, exploration stations, and gallery activities.

At May's H-E-B Free First Sunday, you can:

  • Explore Texas’s ancient past by getting hands-on with fossils.
  • Make sun print works of art with plants native to the Big Bend region.
  • Meet staff from the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and discover how they have worked to help improve Big Bend landscapes.
  • Learn how to take a great nature photograph with Smudge Studios and then try out your skills with a challenge in the Museum’s exhibits.
  • Listen to a story about camping with good friends then start packing your bag to set out on the trail.
  • Get tips for a healthy camping recipe from Common Threads.
  • Visit the Whole Foods Market Tasting Kitchen in Our Global Kitchen for some fizzy fun with Whole Foods Market team members and local favorite Kosmic Kombucha. Try a variety of kombucha floats – a new twist on root beer floats – and learn about the local supplier relationship between Whole Foods Market and recipients of their Local Producer Loan Program.
  • Plan your next national park outing with a screening of National Parks Adventure 3D.
