Wetlands Educational Programs
Education lies at the heart of the Wetlands Center’s mission. The center currently offers day-long educational field trips for every fifth and seventh grader in the Goose Creek Consolidated Independent School District. The programs consist of indoor instruction at the Wetlands Center and outdoor, hands-on activities at the nearby Baytown Nature Center.
Each summer Wade Into Wetlands Summer Science Camp attracts students from grades one through ten for week-long experiences of fun-filled learning and offsite educational field trips.
Other educational offerings include The Wetlands Wagon program taken to schools, libraries, clubs and businesses to educate students and the public on the importance and preservation of wetlands.
Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts may earn badges during Wetlands Center programs tailored to their requirements.
