Love native plants? Love butterflies? We have the perfect volunteer opportunity for you - Butterfly Garden Docent. Docents lead garden walks and tours through the growing season, helping folks identify plants and butterflies and understand the plant-insect connection. Meet monthly for training and brown bag lunch, March, May, July, and September, on the first Saturday at noon; for April, June, August, and October, the first Thursday at 10 am.

2018 Butterfly Garden Walks Begin in April

For the 2018 Garden Walk schedule, walks are set for the first, third and where applicable, the fifth Saturday each month, April through October. In April, walks will be held from 10 am - Noon and will begin earlier later on in the season as the weather heats up! In addition, a special event, Mother's Day in the Garden is set for 3 -5 pm, Sunday, May 13.

Walks are family friendly and offer an oppornity to learn more about native Texas plants for the North Texas area and to view visiting butterflies. Docents can explain the plant butterfly connection and have close-focus binoculars to loan for your visit. Children may enjoy watching the Monarch metamorphosis puppet go through the stages of the Monaarch life cycle or completing a garden journal. Be sure to bring your camera! You may come and stay during the walk or come and go, and all is free of charge.

Walks are not held in case of rain.
