We know that it’s not always possible to bring your students to Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center. If you can’t bring your students into nature, we will bring nature to you.
Shangri La offers several different outreach programs. All programs are aligned to the science standards for Texas (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills). Some are designed specifically for school groups and some for special groups (nursing homes, Rotary Clubs, etc.).
