Go Wild

Explore, enjoy, and learn about the wild side of Grapevine!

Have you ever heard a noise in your neighborhood and thought “I wonder what that was”? Could it be a lizard, a bird? A Frog? A Bobcat? Truth be told, it could be any of those things! Our city is home to numerous types of insects, bugs, birds, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, and more! 

Welcome to Go Wild – A program designed to bring a fun and innovative approach to outdoor education by providing hands-on experiences to educators, families, students, alike. Whether it be an exciting class field trip, a pop-up event with science and wildlife activities, or classes on nature in the area, Go Wild has something for everyone! 

Our mission is simple – to provide hands-on tools and curriculum through outdoor education, events, and experiential learning which shares knowledge with our local community about Grapevine-centric plants, wildlife, landforms, water bodies, ecosystems, and more in order to inspire a sense of environmental stewardship. We invite you to explore, enjoy, and learn about the wild side of Grapevine!
