Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT)

Fort Worth, Texas - United States

BRIT where being green is real and every square inch informs and inspires - right up to our spectacular living roof. From Think Block to Archive Block, from eco-friendly gift shop to meeting areas, from diverse family activities to an extensive library, and from our new BRIT SEED School for educators to our herbarium filled with a million plants, come visit our world to discover your world.

BRIT’s mission is to conserve our natural heritage by deepening our knowledge of the plant world and achieving public understanding of the value plants bring to life. Founded in 1987 and based in Fort Worth, BRIT documents the diversity of plant life and conducts extensive research around the world. In the last ten years, BRIT scientists have located and described scores of species previously unknown to science. Similar to the botanist-explorers of the 18th century, our scientists share the same desires and traits as Sir Joseph Banks, Captain James Cook, and Charles Darwin. We’re adventurous, curious, passionate, independent, and smart. In addition, we are teachers. We are driven to find new plant species and research plant life for agricultural, economic, environmental, medical, and social uses and to share that knowledge in the classroom and the research laboratory. Current major projects are ongoing in Texas, Europe, Peru, and Pacific Islands.
