Summer Camp Volunteer
Located in Dallas' historic Fair Park, Texas Discovery Gardens is a year-round organically maintained urban oasis filled with natural wonders. We have 7.5 acres featuring native and adapted plants, as well as a climate controlled Rosine Smith Sammons Butterfly House and Insectarium, featuring tropical butterflies.
Family festivals, free admission days, and our extensive (and growing) EarthKeepers student education program introduce children and adults to natural outdoor learning experiences.
We are the first public garden in the state of Texas to be certified 100% organic by the Texas Organic Research Center. The gardens are maintained using sustainable methods that conserve water and help to protect the environment.
At family events offered throughout the year, children and parents can share the experience of being amazed and inspired by nature's intricate web of life. Gardening workshops and guided tours provide expert advice on using native and adapted plants to create backyard habitats for butterflies, birds and other native wildlife.
At Texas Discovery Gardens, discover a wealth of information on ways to restore, conserve and preserve natural environments in urban areas.
