Learn about the rare plants that grow right here in North Texas. We will focus on local rare plants, learning about their unique habitats and how to distinguish them from their more common relatives. We will explore the types of information needed when reporting and monitoring for rare plants and practice these skills on the BRIT campus. 

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.
