McKinney Roughs Nature Park is home to the Mark Rose Natural Science Center. After opening in 1998, the center quickly became the centerpiece of the LCRA’s natural science program. The center offers nature programs throughout the year for students ages four to 18. Children can observe live animals in their habitat, catch and classify insects, or spend the day rafting the Colorado River. Children can acquire wilderness survival skills in the Junior Naturalist Program.

Another program at McKinney Roughs, the Academy in the Roughs, allows student groups with adult chaperones to immerse themselves in two to five-day Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) based academic enrichment programs. Three different program topics are offered, including Texas frontier history, riparian ecosystems, and studies of the food chain. A leadership program involving group dynamics is offered to teens.
