A Fly Little Party
Much like traveling yuppies and road-tripping college students, millions of bats, birds and butterflies make a long trek to warmer, prettier digs each spring. To celebrate this annual jaunt, the Houston Zoo is throwing the fourth annual Migration Celebration and Butterfly Festival. Folks of all ages can learn more about migration by making origami and building environmentally friendly bird feeders. And the kiddos can get weighed, tagged and banded, and then tracked throughout the zoo, much like migratory birds. There's also a butterfly costume contest for little bug wannabes. You'll definitely want to migrate to this party.
Sun., April 9, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
