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.

Stacy McReynolds

San Antonio Zoo
VP Education
Happiest outside sharing her love of nature, Stacy McReynolds is Vice President of Education at the San Antonio Zoo. For the last 17 years, Stacy has led the zoo's education team to inspire, educate and motivate guests to protect wildlife and nature. One of her early accomplishments at the zoo was organizing and leading the team that developed Kronkosky's Tiny Tot Nature Spot, which opened in 2004. This award-winning exhibit was the first stand-alone zoo exhibit specifically designed around play and connecting families with very young children with nature. That same year the organization opened Zoo School, a nature-based preschool designed with the similar purpose. Most recently Stacy has been working with a diverse team to design and renovate a new campus that will significantly expand Zoo School's enrollment and impact. Stacy completed her undergraduate degree in Biology at Texas A&M University and did her graduate work in Education at the University of Houston Clear Lake. She also sits on the Advisory Board for the Natural Start Alliance, the Disney Nature Club Advisory Group and has been a member of the Texas Children in Nature since its inception.
