Description

Welcome spring to Dallas at the Flora Fest, a family-friendly fundraising event at Texas Discovery Gardens. Expect fun for the whole family such as butterfly releases, critter encounters, model trains, games, food samples, art, live music, entertainment, and programming throughout the day on Saturday, May 15 from 11:30am to 5pm. There will also be a big surprise announcement at 1pm.

Ticket sales and donations from this year's Flora Fest will be used to renovate Texas Discovery Gardens' greenhouse, which needs $300,000 worth of repairs. Through good stewardship of operational funds and other fundraising, the organization has already successfully raised $150,000. The fundraising goal for this event is $50,000. Help support the effort by purchasing event tickets or making a donation here.

About Texas Discovery Gardens
Texas Discovery Gardens is a nonprofit organization that operates a 7.5-acre organic garden features native and adapted plants. Inside, the two-story Rosine Smith Sammons Butterfly House and Insectarium transports you to a tropical rainforest, complete with hundreds of free-flying tropical butterflies.

Located in Dallas' historic Fair Park, Texas Discovery Gardens is a year-round organically maintained urban oasis filled with natural wonders. Family festivals, workshops, free admission days, and extensive (and growing) EarthKeepers student education program introduce children and adults to natural outdoor learning experiences.

It is 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.
