Perot Museum Learning Labs, plus 7 field trips to natural parks in DFW
Explore the true nature of Texas.
Do your kids get excited about catching bugs, collecting rocks or tracking wildlife? For 4th-6th graders who can’t get enough of the great outdoors, the Junior Master Naturalist program offers a whole new way to explore and protect the natural wonders of Texas.
Led by Perot Museum education staff and North Texas Master Naturalist volunteers, this program combines engaging classroom training with inspiring field-based discovery to help kids develop a deeper appreciation and understanding of Texas ecosystems. Through exciting hands-on explorations and outdoor adventures, your child will gain the skills and knowledge to become good stewards of the environment.
Classes take place in Learning Labs at the Museum, and participants and their parents meet at different parks in the North Texas area to explore Texas terrain, vegetation and wildlife firsthand.
Once they’ve completed the program, your kids will even have the opportunity to help train future Junior Master Naturalists by becoming volunteers themselves!
Please note that at least one guardian must provide transportation and accompany his or her children during each field trip.
