Event Details

The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History is collaborating with Boy Scout Troop 1222 and the City of Bryan to officially unveil a newly created Carter Creek Nature Trail at the Brazos Center Park. On Wednesday, December 9 at 5:30 pm at a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at the Museum’s Brazos Center location, Harvey Stewart III, Eagle Scout Candidate, will formally unveil the new trail created as his Eagle Scout Project.  The entire community is invited to join in this free celebration, which will include a chance for visitors to see the trail, to enjoy refreshments in the Museum following the ribbon cutting, and to hear remarks by Community dignitaries and the Museum director, Dr. Deborah Cowman.  The Museum’s galleries will be open for viewing.

The only Museum of its kind in the 7-county Brazos Valley region, the Museum preserves and displays spectacular collections reflecting our diverse natural and cultural heritage. The creation of this new trail will allow the Museum to expand its outdoor education offerings.

“We are proud of the beautiful trail and botanical markers that Harvey has produced,” notes Dr. Cowman, executive director of the Museum. “This project has been the result of hours of careful planning and labor by Harvey and the City of Bryan. And this is just the beginning. We hope to encourage other Eagle Scout Candidates to continue to add to the trail and to create new interpretative materials to enhance it.”

Expected to attend the ceremony are the Museum’s Board of Trustees, Museum faculty, staff, Museum Friends, volunteers, and the general public. They will be joined by the staff, members, and supporters of the City of Bryan, members of Scout Troop 1222, and the Chamber of Commerce.

Admission to the Museum’s permanent galleries is $5 for adults, $4 for students and seniors. Children 3 and under are free. The Museum, located in the Brazos Center on Briarcrest Drive, is open to the public Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm, and the first Sunday of the month from 1-5pm.  For additional information about this and other Museum events and exhibits, call 979.776.2195 or visit our website at
