Discover native Texas wildlife with TWRC Wildlife Center
We offer exciting and engaging outreach programs with the help of our team of animal ambassadors.
Supporting conservation through environmental education! We teach about the benefits of coexisting with our wild neighbors, their roles in the urban ecosystem, and how to help wildlife in need.
Our programs are specially-tailored to the age of the audience and are great for classrooms, scout groups, club meetings, or special occasions! Onsite or offsite programs are available in 30, 45, or 60-minute formats.
Programs may include any of the following live animals:
- Box turtles or Texas tortoise
- Native Texas snakes
- Eastern Screech Owl
- Virginia Opossum
Please note: TWRC Wildlife Center is working to ensure the safety of staff, animals, and audiences during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We are currently evaluating each program request on a case-by-case basis.
