“Out on a Limb”

Introduce your kids to Henry David Thoreau (or at least to some of his ideas) at the Children’s Museum of Houston’s new exhibit “Out on a Limb — Adventures with Nature and Arts.” It was Thoreau’s view of nature, along with that of environmentalist Rachel Carson and author Richard Louv, that inspired the interactive display.
