The Flora Award, one of Dallas’ most prestigious honors, has been presented in support of Texas Discovery Gardens since its inception in 1982. It serves to recognize outstanding citizens who have demonstrated a commitment to community service, education and the advancement of the environment and quality of life.

Flora Award proceeds support our educational mission to help children and adults discover and learn to sustain their natural world. Thousands of visitors explore Texas Discovery Gardens’ 7.5 acre organic “living museum” and Rosine Smith Sammons Butterfly House and Insectarium or attend one of the many educational programs offered. Our hands-on educational practices give participants a better awareness of their impact on their environment.
