NATURE & SCIENCE PROGRAMS

 

 Pioneer Farms offers several nature and science exploring programs for young Texans, each of which meets state curriculum standards.

 

forest discoveries

  Our historic woodlands along Walnut Creek are prefect for science and nature discovery, and for lessons about the environment — past and present. Students will learn about native species, how early settlers utilized them and how they remain an integral part of Central Texas' cycle of life. Reservations are required. Guided and non-guided tours are available. Available on Wednesdays only from February to August, and from September to early December. Appropriate for grades K-4.

  Fee is $5 per student. Duration is 4 hours, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

 

first texans

  Visit the authentic site of a Tonkawa Indian encampment in the early 1800s, long before Texas was a state, and learn about how the First Texans lived, worked and played, and about how they interacted with the early white settlers. Nature and natural resource conservation are key components. This is a hands-on history class that will take your students back to the days of the Republic of Texas. Reservations are required. Guided tours are available. Available on Thursdays only from January to August, and from September to early December.

  Fee is $5 per student. Duration is 4 hours, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
