It Gives Us Butterflies!

Wondering why you’ve been seeing dust circulating in downtown Dallas?

The Texas Discovery Gardens has been undergoing renovations in the main building (the outside gardens are still open and available to the public). But here’s the really cool part: The gardens are adding a butterfly house! The Rosine Smith Sammons Butterfly House and Insectarium opens in September and will be a year-round, tropical enclosure for the winged beauties.

Be one of the first to visit the new butterfly house at the Grand Opening Celebration from 10am-5pm Sept. 12-13. All kinds of entertainment will be available, including children’s crafts and performances by local entertainers.

While you’re there, check out the other collections including the Scent Garden, which was patterned after a London herb garden, and the Faerie Blanton Kilgore Rose Garden, which showcases antique and fragrant roses of all colors.

Be sure to check the gardens’ Web site for more info to come.
