Join the Texas Children in Nature network at the annual Summit and Champions Luncheon. The Summit will bring together leaders from the conservation, education, health, faith and built-environments to share best practices and new innovations that will inspire others to take action.

Texas Children in Nature (TCiN) is a program of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. TCiN supports the network of over 500 partner organizations who are dedicated to creating equitble access to nature for children and families. Research shows that children who learn and play in nature are healthier, happier and smarter. Join us this year at the Summit and find out why Texas continues to lead the children in nature movement to connect over 3 million children with nature each year.

Westcave Outdoor Discovery Center
Program Manager
Austin, TX
Addie began connecting kids with nature in 2008 as a camp counselor at El Ranchito nature immersion camp. Her innate talent to teach natural sciences coupled with her immense passion and vast knowledge of the Texas Hill Country and made her a perfect fit for a career at Westcave. Addie started as an intern at Westcave in early 2010 where she helped facilitate weekday education programs and led guided tours on the weekends. Now as a full time employee, she continues to support Westcave in many ways – administratively, hands-on at the Preserve, and most recently as the Coordinator for the Children in Nature Collaborative of Austin. Addie’s role has also expanded at El Ranchito, where she still spends every June and is fondly known as “Chef Addie.” She is an active member of the local food community and enjoys cooking and gardening with friends, and can be found working at the farmer’s market every weekend. Addie earned her Associate’s Degree of Environmental Science and Applied Technology from Austin Community College and hopes to pursue her education further in biology, geo-sciences and outdoor education.
