On-site educational programming is back!

GROW-Guided Field Study Trips spark curiosity and a love for learning through experiential activities in nature on the BRIT and Fort Worth Botanic Garden campuses. 

Self-Guided Explorations allow groups the freedom to explore at their own pace.

Local homeschoolers join us for seasonal Homeschool Days, where we explore BRIT and the Gardens through hands-on learning and scientific inquiry. 

Girl Scouts and their troops can come out an earn outdoor badges at our Girl Scout Saturday events.

The safety of our staff and guests is very important to us. Because physical distancing is difficult to enforce when working with children, a mask requirement, even when outside is necessary for all children’s programming. If you or a family member needs to temporarily remove your mask during a program, designated spaces for this will be available. Activity spaces will be set up according to social distancing needs, and all activity supplies will be either disposable or be used only by one child, then removed for sanitization.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions on group size, it is important we maintain an accurate headcount of participating individuals. This includes both adults and younger siblings staying with the group during activities. Please be sure to include both when making your registrations.
