The education department at Texas Discovery Gardens is committed to providing quality, outdoor, and year-round educational opportunities for Dallas area children. We want every visitor to increase his or her environmental understanding with every visit.
School and Educational Groups
If you are looking for an educational and outdoor field trip for your students, then visit Texas Discovery Gardens at Fair Park. We are a public, organic garden in the heart of Dallas and are located within easy walking distance of many Fair Park museums, especially the Museum of Nature and Science's Planetarium.
EarthKeepers ® Programming
Texas Discovery Gardens offers fun, hands-on environmental education programs for children and adults. We have outdoor learning and service project opportunities for students PreK through 8th grade, Girl and Boy scout programs, science clubs, after school groups, and summer day schools. Teachers, you can further your knowledge and get CPE credits here at our weekend workshops and planned events.
Our affordable educational programs include a tour of our organic gardens that highlights key science, math, language arts, and social studies concepts. We offer a combination package to include both an educational program and a tour of The Rosine Smith Sammons Butterfly House and Insectarium. Many programs include a take-home teaching tool for the class or individual participants.
We can even come to you! If transportation is an issue, please ask about our outreach options.
