Prairie Keepers Programs


We design story driven science games that reveal Earth's place in space and deep time history, while exploring the Cross Timbers ecosystem.  Our new passport game challenge designed for Keller Farmers Market leads participants through a discovery of the vital link of pollinators and food.  Passport gamers meet farmers, artists and scientists during six second Saturday market days from May through October.

Our programs serve home school science co-ops, scouts, family groups, unschoolers and school groups.  We also host Citizen Science events that connect volunteers to an ecoliterate future. 

Contact us, and we'll bring our program to your site or a public green space near your home.

We need your help to keep our programs free.  Explore our VolunteerMatch page to sign up for free hike leader or Passport Game Guide training.

Our mission is to share research based science in a natural world setting.  Here are a few of our favorite resources: HHMI Biointeractive and A Natural History of North Central Texas  and the book Thank God for Evolution.  It's often a challenge to teach kids and families about evolution.  We share the fundamentals of evolutionary biology and deep time in an experiential, game based context.  We are deeply grateful to artists Karen Carr and Richard Bizley, Don Young, Debora Young, and tING tING design for their support of our time travel game: Chronos - The Keeper of Time (c) .

Your donation will help deliver free field experiences to students through our outdoor education programs.
