Texas Discovery Gardens

For those of you in the DFW metroplex area, there is a gem of a place to visit on the State Fair grounds called the Texas Discovery Gardens. This is not only a beautiful garden that changes as the seasons go by, but a unique educational outreach center. Their programs are geared to all ages. The Organic in the City lecture series concludes September 2 and Skies of Butterflies will have 200+ native live butterflies in the butterfly house starting September 13 and running through October 24. If you have time for a neat outing, check out the center. For those of you that go to the State Fair, it is tucked away in the southwest corner and is totally secluded from all the excitement of the fair. Its a place you can relax during your State Fair visit and contemplate nature within the city.
