Description: Our key initiative is to educate the next generation of environmental stewards using the resources of River Legacy Parks and River Legacy Living Science Center. Starting with children as young as 3 years old, our environmental education programs expose children to the wonders of nature and their place in it. Through education, we preserve the Trinity River and its unique eco-system.
