Wildlife by Design Across Texas pairs our classroom presentations with distance learning, allowing us to share our educational presentations with you anywhere across Texas!

For full details and complete presentation schedule, visit the Wildlife by Design Across Texas webpage.

Stewarding Soil is a series of hands-on activities that allows students to dig in and investigate!  Students will learn how soil is formed; the characteristics of sand, silt, and clay; how soil health affects living and nonliving things; and what products come from soil.  Throughout the program, students will gain a better understanding of why soil is so important to wildlife and people and how they can be stewards of this natural resource.
