The Prude Family has been at Prude Ranch for over 100 years. Because of all the teaching experience in the many generations, the Prudes were inspired to give students the opportunity to learn in the outdoors. The Prude Ranch Education programs were begun in 1988 under the approval of the Texas Education Agency. New programs are added each year to give the students a hands-on learning experience. Prude Ranch also serves as a training location for The GLOBE Program that unites teachers, students, and scientists from around the world in study and research about the dynamics of the Earth’s Environments.
