With its environmental education mission, the Botanical Gardens & Nature Center
knows there’s nothing better than beginning young,
getting students out of the classroom into “nature’s laboratory!”
Teachers extend their curriculum with Youth Field Trips, one of our specialties,
whether public or private schools, home school, church groups,
scouts—all the way through college! Minimum Field Trip is 12 students.
All Youth Field Trips are designed with STEAM and TEKS objectives.
$5 each adult chaperone. Activities subject to weather, availability.
Please contact Education Coordinator Brenda Ermis for planning, pricing,
