Summer is here and with it, the return of Lifelong Learning Center day trips!

Trip #1: Clark Gardens

Please join us on June 8 for a trip to Clark Gardens in Weatherford.

This breathtaking 50-acre oasis awakens the senses, stirs the spirit and relaxes the mind. Waterfalls sparkle in the sunlight, splashing down into ponds and lakes where black and white swans, along with other waterfowl, glide in the shimmering waters. You may see peacocks strutting, or get a glimpse of blue herons or great egrets swooping down, their huge wingspans casting shadows over the lakes. Join us and experience the beauty of nature!

We'll meet at the Lifelong Learning Center at 8:00am, ride the MSU bus to Clark Gardens for a guided tour, enjoy lunch, and return to the LLC by late afternoon.

Trip #2: Perot Museum of Nature and Science

On June 29, hop on the bus for a trip to the Perot Museum in Dallas.  While there, immerse yourself in the featured traveling exhibit "Becoming Jane: The Evolution of Dr. Jane Goodall," and wander through the 11 different exhibit halls that showcase everything from fossils, gems, and minerals, to sports, engineering, energy, birds, and more!

We'll meet at the Lifelong Learning Center at 8:00am, ride the MSU bus to the Perot Museum, enjoy lunch at Wolfgang Puck's cafe inside the museum, and return to the LLC by late afternoon.


The cost for each trip is $50 per person, which includes continental breakfast at the LLC, bus transportation, admission, and snacks on the ride home.  Lunch is not included in the registration fee.

All Texomans age 50 and better are welcome to participate in the day trips -- you do not need to be a member of the LLC for these events.

Sarah and I hope to see you on the bus for the trips to Clark Gardens and the Perot Museum!
