Roots & Wings Festival Event

A nature-filled night at Laguna Gloria

Join us at Laguna Gloria for an evening of exploration and celebration of trees, pollinators, and all creatures as an iteration of the City of Austin’s annual Roots & Wings Festival.

While here learn more about how you can help support the pollinators in our city and enjoy exploring all the art and nature Laguna Gloria has to offer!

Museum educator and Yogi Kate Gibbs will be leading an interactive, multisensory stroll through Laguna Gloria. These engaging walks will start and end at the oval on a 30-minute rotate basis.

Come along to experience the land through our senses, bodies, and imaginations.

All are welcome! We will have plants that support our monarch friends and 5-gallon saplings for you to take home with you!

We can’t wait to see you there!

About Roots and Wings Festival

An annual community-wide celebration of trees, pollinators, and all creatures.

The Festival is dedicated to celebrating nature in our neighborhoods. We embrace the idea that we are all connected to each other and to our local ecosystem. Growing these connections creates a stronger, more resilient community.

The Roots & Wings Festival is not one event, it is many, and it is led by the community in neighborhoods all over Austin. Community events feature celebrations of our urban forest ecosystem (trees, plants, fungi, soil health, pollinators, birds, bats, and more)!
