GRAPEVINE, TEXAS (January 22, 2015) - Charlie Brown is in hot water, Lucy knows the Earth has 48 suns and Snoopy and Linus are planting french fries in the garden. These are just a few of the misadventures and explanations gone wrong as the Peanuts Gang explores the natural world at the "Peanuts... Naturally" exhibit in Grapevine's Tower Gallery, 636 S. Main St., Grapevine.

Beginning February 4 through April 22, the exhibit takes a lighthearted look at Charles Schulz's exploration of the natural world through "Peanuts" comic strips, videos, objects and interactive stations. Visitors get a "Peanuts"-eye view of the universe, "web of nature," trees, birds, the elements (snow, wind, rain and clouds), gardening and Charlie Brown's escapade. Activity stations allow children of all ages, from pre-school to adults, to learn more about and appreciate the wonders of the natural world.

Schulz, who drew the "Peanuts" comic strip for nearly 50 years, was immensely curious, an avid reader and took a keen interest in the latest research findings in a variety of fields. It is not a surprise that many of these findings and facts found their way into Schulz's comic strip carefully interpreted through his characters' unique, and sometimes wacky, understanding of their world.

"Peanuts... Naturally" is organized and toured by the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, Santa Rosa, California.

The exhibition is free and will be open Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m. - 6:30 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. - 5 p.m. The Tower Gallery is located in the Grapevine Convention & Visitors Bureau Headquarters at 636 S. Main St.
