GET OUT

Welcome to Fortlandia

If your idea of Holiday fun leans more Tim Burton than Bing Crosby, swing by the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin through January 31 and discover Fortlandia, a series of play structures celebrating the flora and fauna of Texas. As part of the exhibit, a team from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department created Snake, Rattle & Roll, a larger-than-life rattlesnake made with upcycled materials, including tires, climbing rope and wood decking.

The design, one of several around the park, celebrates the importance of nature play in children's lives ­— and the lives of grown-ups, too.
