Professional Learning at the Arboretum

The Dallas Arboretum provides tear-round CPE credit opportunities for educators who want to get outside of the classroom and soak in knowledge to be passed along.

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. Many workshops are also available at your campus (for groups of fifteen or more). Custom workshops available upon request.

Contact education@dallasarboretum.org with any questions.
