CORPUS CHRISIT, Texas — The South Texas Botanical Gardens and Nature Center is offering that special dad in your life free admission this Father's Day weekend.

Here's the catch: all dads must say "Lizards and Snakes" at check-in in order to get in for free.

All dads receive free admission on June 18 and 19 at the South Texas Botanical Gardens and Nature Center, located at 8545 South Staples Street.

South Texas Botanical Gardens and Nature Center is open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Explore trails, wetlands, gardens, and the boardwalk with the entire family. The "Rep-Tales" exhibit begins at 10:30 am on both days, organizers say.
