BRIT is more than an information resource (information defined as plant specimens, books, exhibits, programs and lectures). These are solid functional benefits and the base of our very existence. However, what we ultimately promise to our audience is knowledge, defined as:

• Understanding the value that plants bring to life (applying what you know)

• Knowing why conservation is important

• Intellectual pursuits solved – enlightenment!

• Decreased science anxiety

• Power to make a difference for future generations

Knowledge establishes the relationship between BRIT and its audiences by providing practical, accessible research and opinions to inspire learning, sharing and a desire to make an informed difference in conserving earth's natural resources for future generations.

  • I went on a field trip with my son’s class. The people there are so sweet and understanding of how little ones can be. The lady that worked with us was so patient and nice. She did an amazing job with the kids. She read a fun book to them and spoke to them about plants and insects. We took a walk out in the garden and she talked abt a few of the flowers showing them things they would find interesting. They even got to look through microscopes and use tweezers to separate leaves, stems, buds and categorize them. There was another room with stations and each station was an activity that was age appropriate. We ate our lunch in a shaded area with a few benches and lots for kids to sit on. It was a wonderful trip that all of them enjoyed so much! We had kids from 3 to 6 yrs old with us.
  • Best place to learn about plant taxonomy in Texas with good building concept. The laboratium should be very useful for university students if they want do some research about plant. Many collection of plant herbariums, books and pictures. There is also room for children to learn something. Nice people will guide you to see around the building. If you lucky, you can see horses eat the grass at the backyard as their method to clean grass. There is solar panel on the roof.
