Mother’s Day Concert & Butterfly Release
The Women’s Chorus of Dallas has harmonized a wealth of both pop and traditional songs since their inception in 1989. On Mother’s Day, they’ll dazzle listeners with an hour-long concert on the blossoming grounds of Texas Discovery Gardens. Following the concert, guests will head to the Conservatory to witness a live butterfly release. To purchase a butterfly that you can release into the conservatory, visit TexasDiscoveryGardens.org.
Texas Discovery Gardens
At noon every day, a new flock of butterflies is released into the butterfly house at Texas Discovery Gardens, opening their colorful wings for the first time among the lush vegetation. Counted among their number are elegant species such as the monarch and the blue morpho, while an outdoor nursery attracts native butterflies with nectar-rich plants and attractive butterfly buffets. This is just one of the ten themed areas on the 7.5-acre estate, which brims with vibrant collections of plants collected from around the world and is maintained using sustainable, organic methods. The newly renovated Tribute Garden invites visitors to relax in the shade next to a bubbling fountain, and the Master Gardeners' Garden demonstrates landscaping practices that are both attractive and environmentally friendly.
The organization also offers education and outreach programs for children to teach them about life cycles and natural landscapes, as well as increase their understanding and appreciation for nature. Visitors can also attend festivals including the Butterflies and Bugs Family Festival on August 3, as well as special programing such as Sunrise Pilates and guided nature walks.
