Fortlandia: Your Secret Hideout Awaits!

October 5, 8:00am - 9:30am CDT. Hosted at Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

About this FieldTrip

The Wildflower Center presents Fortlandia, a collection of unique forts by local architecture and design firms, individual artists, and students from The University of Texas at Austin.

Each fort has been custom-built to evoke memories of childhoods spent escaping into nature and daydreaming outdoors. Delight in these innovative spaces as they transport you to fantastic imaginary worlds and inspire an appreciation for art and nature — and the curious, wonderful ways in which they intersect.

On this CreativeMornings FieldTrip you will be among the first to tour this original exhibition in the Texas Arboretum. Interact with the forts and let your imagination soar in our fort-building area where you can design and erect your own work of architectural wonder. Several of the designers will be on-hand to talk about their designs with us!

Wear shoes that are comfortable for walking on gravel and mulch. The trail is wheelchair accessible.
