Children & Families

Family programming provides guided outdoor explorations, story time, and hands-on learning stations to local families. 

Camps over the spring and summer breaks take kids outside to explore the world of plants and learn about nature through the lens of a scientist.

Butterflies in the Garden programs explore the Fort Worth Botanic Garden’s beautiful conservatory filled with thousands of exotic butterflies during this special exhibit and enjoy pollinator themed educational activities at BRIT.

Homeschool Day is a custom experience designed to assist exploration and connect learners to nature with the Fort Worth Botanic Garden and BRIT as educational resources.

Girl Scout Saturdays provide scouts the opportunity to complete badge requirements through experiential, nature based workshops.
