The Austin Nature and Science Center (ANSC) is Central Texas' only living nature and science museum. The ANSC is situated on an eighty acre preserve containing woodlands (80%), and a meadow area (20%). Two well-fed ponds, a major lake, a wet weather creek, and geological escarpments are some of the features on our site. This diverse location gives us a natural abundance of vegetation and wildlife.

Wild Basin is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting an endangered habitat and encouraging wise stewardship through education. In addition to the display of our natural collections, we hope to develop interpretive displays inside our building and along out trails. Our educational programs will also expand to privide more specialized information for visitors, school groups, and teachers. The barriers are financial and time to create these.
