A Need for Connection

People are more connected today than ever before in human history. Despite this, whole generations are rapidly losing connections with nature. Our mission is to connect residents of the Brazos Valley to our natural resources through unique, nature-centered  experiences in the classroom, at public, and in the daily lives of friends, family members, and future generations.

Who is The Urban Interface

Our Mission

The Urban Interface (TUI) is an educational and conservation based organization dedicated to the careful stewardship of wildlife, human development, and the vision of creating a more balanced, sustainable community between the two. 

Like the forestry term we are named after, The Urban Interface strives to be a bridge between wild lands and urban development, providing the opportunity for people to engage with local nature and wildlife in a unique environment that both protects your natural resources and encourages healthy growth of people and natural space.

We Are Experts

 

We are a 501(c)3 organization licensed by the Federal and State Government to keep and train these highly protected animals for educational outreach.

Our programs are designed to teach the conservation, life histories, and biology of native Texas species you may encounter in your backyard.

 

For teachers this means our programs can be used to add diversity to the concepts you are already planning to teach. We will happily work with you to develop a program that interacts with students to discuss different topics for any age group or any TEKs requirement you may want to cover.
