Toads In Town
Can you find all the toads in town? Take part in this self-guided tour and have a hoppin' good time while doing it. Developed by Clint and Jamie Howard, owners of Deep In The Heart Art Foundry, this tour gets you out and about exploring the heart of Bastrop while educating about an endangered species in our region, the Houston Toad.
We challenge you to find each toad and write something about what you think is part of their story. What are they doing? Where are they going? Where have they been? Get inspired to create a story of your own. Pick up your official Toads In Town pack at the Museum and Visitor Center, or download and print one below. After you have found each toad and written a piece of their story, return your brochure to the Museum and Visitor Center to claim a small prize!
