Purchase Tickets Online Here

Please join us for the 20th annual Nature Discovery Center Twilight Gala, helping the greater Houston community discover, enjoy and value nature. For nearly three decades, the Nature Discovery Center has been sparking interest in science and nature, developing critical thinking tools, enriching educational opportunities for children, improving the teaching of science for teachers, and nourishing the inquiring minds of hundreds of thousands of people, particularly children.

We invite you to be an early seedling by becoming an underwriter of the Nature Discovery Center Gala, Turning A New Leaf, to be held on Friday, November 21, 2014, at The Houstonian Hotel!

This year’s Twilight Gala fetes all that is new and renewed at the Center. From the fresh renovation of the 89-year-old Henshaw House to the renewal of the grounds for all of those that spend time in the four-acre outdoor classroom, Russ Pitman Park.

We sincerely appreciate your generosity and support, and we look forward to seeing you on November 21st. If you are unable to join us at Turning A New Leaf, please consider making a donation to the Nature Discovery Center.
