“Beautiful Building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2011

I went to visit BRIT for work and was lucky enough to be able to explore the entire building and site. I wish I lived in Fort Worth so that I could take advantage of their educational programs.It's the first LEED-NC Platinum building in Tarrant County, so if you are an architecture or environmental enthusiatic, it's also worth a visit. If you go, don't miss the feature wall in the lobby--it's made from sinker cypress reclaimed from a river bottom where loggers lost it 100 years ago.

“Outstanding Plant Collection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2011

A visit to BRIT is interesting on several levels. Their new sustainable building has a living roof, vegetated walls and a retention pond. All of the landscaping has been done with Native Texas Plants. It is worth a visit just to see the building and grounds. BRIT is located next door to the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens. BRIT also offers special educational programs. Check the web site for docent led tours or tour on your own M - F 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. The emphasis is on research. The collection contains over a million preserved plants from around the world.
