For Teachers

Our environmental education field studies will give your students a hands-on, real-world experience. Schedule a class today!

school field studies

Our premier environmental education programs specialize in field studies for 4th-12th graders. They are STEM-based and aligned with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, or TEKS. Our curriculum is the result of a partnership with regional school districts, wildlife and conservation organizations, and research institutions.

Each program gives students the opportunity to observe, collect and analyze data for a real-world experience. This scientific-inquiry method using field and laboratory investigations helps them solve problems, make informed decisions and consider an environmental science career path.
