The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden doesn’t just offer educational programming during the school day! Our out-of-school options include summer camps, family and group overnights and a variety of scout programs. We also offer programming for homeschool families during the school day.
The Arboretum isn’t just the perfect field trip for students and the best floral display in Dallas, but it is also the ideal location to get TEA-approved Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit if you’re a teacher! All of our workshops allow educators the opportunity to enjoy learning in Dallas’ most beautiful outdoor classroom in highly-aligned and hands-on workshops.
The Speakers Bureau has an extraordinary passion for the Dallas Arboretum. This talented group is available to provide lively and entertaining presentations on a variety of topics related to the Arboretum. Presentations can be adapted to the length your meeting requires.
