GROW-Guided Field Study Trips are two-hour, immersive experiences available at both BRIT* and the Fort Worth Botanic Garden campuses, led by our amazing GROW educators. Students can become scientists in our herbarium of over 1.5 million plant species, explore the many areas of the gardens, and learn about botany in TEKS based, nature-inspired field study trips! 

Spring and Summer FWBG Experiences:

  • Pre-K - 2nd: Super Seeds
  • 3rd - 5th: Texas Ecoregion Roundup
  • Middle & High School: Spectacular Systems

Because the activities for Butterflies in the Garden take place on the BRIT campus, there is not a separate GROW-Guided experience available at BRIT during this time. BRIT experiences will resume in May.

Available : Tuesdays - Fridays, 10 am – 12 noon (exceptions upon request)

$7 /student and $5 /registered adult

$140 minimum for groups of 20 or fewer.

Any unregistered adult joining on the day of a Field Study Trip at the Garden will pay the regular garden admission of $12.
