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.

Our environmental academic summer camps are full of discovery and fun with an academic twist.
ASI: Aquatic Science Investigation
ASI 2023 application due May 5th!
ASI promotes scholarship and student success for high school students interested in environmental systems and natural resources. A major goal is for students to become aware of water as an important Texas natural resource and the need to conserve it. With a focus on STEM activities and an individual project to be done during the camp, students leave with knowledge and experiences that benefit them in the classroom environment. Students spend the week at the Wetland Center, participating in day trips to other wetland venues. Below is more information. Please email all completed applications to email@example.com.

Teen Sustainability Summit (TSS!)
TSS 2023 Application due May 5th!
TSS 2023: June 26-30
The Teen Sustainability Summit promotes sustainable energy and conservation of natural resources. The goal of this week long program is for participants to become familiar with natural resources and their impact on them and to learn how they can support sustainable practices in their own lives. Students will spend the week at the Wetland Center, traveling to sites that use sustainable practices such as wind or solar farms, farm-to-table businesses and a sustainable dairy farm. Students will determine the next best solution for sustainable practices as they experience different venues and share their insights with their peers. Please email all completed applications to firstname.lastname@example.org.
