The Fischer Park Nature Education Center was named a Texas Aquatic Science Certified Field Site by the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department in February.

“This certification adds a credential for our field trip offerings that benefits teachers who will be able to count on Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills-aligned educational materials both in and out of the classroom,” Recreation Supervisor Sonja Mienar said in a press release.

According to the TAS website, Texas Aquatic Science is an aquatic science curriculum that examines waterways across Texas and offers learning materials for middle and high school science students to study waterways and ecosystems.

Fischer Park offers field trips that incorporate TAS activities for kindergarten through 12th-grade students.
