On Saturday, the Land Heritage Institute gives nature lovers and explorers a perfect excuse to spend a day in the great outdoors. The 1,200-acre living land museum gets interactive with Native San Antonio!, a family-friendly day of hands-on activities, presentations, live music, scavenger hunts, guided nature hikes, hayrides, and more, courtesy of the Native Plant Society of Texas. Throughout the day, learn how SA’s native species factor in to everything from herbal remedies (Dr. Elizabeth de la Portilla’s presentation “Curanderismo: Herbs for Healing” begins at 11 a.m.) to the Mission Reach (San Antonio River Authority’s Lee Marlowe speaks at noon). Free (lunch and snacks will be available for purchase onsite), 10am-2pm, Land Heritage Institute, 1349 Neal Road (between Applewhite and Pleasanton, across the Medina River from the Toyota Manufacturing Plant), (210) 829-1737, landheritageinstitute.org. For details, call (210) 382-2614.
