Choose Your Own Nature Tour

Exploring ecosystems, habitats and organisms found on campus and in Austin
Age group: All Ages, Elementary School, Middle/Junior High School

This virtual nature tour takes the format of a choose-your-own-adventure game. Players will get to make a variety of choices regarding where they would like to go, what they would like to see, and what things they would like to interact with. Each decision will affect further encounters and the sights that they see. The "tour" will take players across the UT campus and surrounding area as they discover the variety of ecosystems and the organisms that inhabit them. At each stop, players will learn a bit more about what lives around them! They are able to explore sites such as Barton Springs, the turtle pond, Waller Creek, the greenbelt and the NHB Research Greenhouse.
