Self-Guided Group Visit

The self-guided group visit is great for large groups who are looking to explore the Nature Center and the trails at their own pace. The Nature Center is a great educational resource to enhance a lesson plan, or to simply bring a group to explore and learn about the wonders of nature. 

Visit Includes:

  • Discovery Room admission to play and learn from our large interactive walls, aquatic tanks, and educational exhibit pieces.
  • Scheduled time to observe the native animals in the atrium.
  • The opportunity to go outside to explore the trails, count turtles at the pond, identify birds at the bird blind, and use our interactive app for further learning outdoors.
Homeschool/Multi-Age Group Program

This program is designed for groups of children ages 3 to 11 with parents/guardians who want to introduce young scientists to the North Texas woodland habitat. 

Program includes:

  • 30-45 minute educational presentation by a Naturalist based on topic of your choice (reptiles, invertebrates, or mammals – when available)
  • The opportunity to go outside to explore the trails, count turtles at the pond, identify birds at the bird blind, and use our interactive app for further learning outdoors
 
This program does NOT include admission to the Discovery Room
