Monarch butterflies travel through our area on their way to the overwintering habitat in Mexico.  Learn about this great migration and how you can become involved in citizen science activities to advance our knowledge of this awesome journey. Understand what role fall flowers play in supporting monarch flight. Discover the pollinators who share butterflies’ floral needs when summer is closing, and what they do to prepare for winter.

About TERM

Welcome to TERM (Techniques for Ecological Research and Management), a joint education outreach program presented by the Fort Worth Nature Center, the Botanical Research Institue of Texas, and the Fort Worth Botanic Garden.

TERM, which grew out of an identified gap in hands-on, experience-based education in the fields of plant and wildlife science, conservation, sustainability, and ecology, offers carefully designed field investigations, workshops, and classes which will enhance TERM participants' classroom education and offer an opportunity to assemble a unique set of skills. Additionally, TERM will allow participants to interact and network with professionals and students in their field of interest.
