BRIT First Saturday

BRIT is open to the public the first Saturday of the month, February - November, from 9 a.m. to noon for exhibits, plant ID, Bella's Story Time, tours and classes.

While you're here, make time to explore our pocket prairie and BRITscape.  And, since we're just a short stroll from the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, why not explore their grounds, too? 

We look forward to seeing you soon!
