Home School First Thursdays

On the first Thursday of every month we provide an educational program for home school children from 1:00-3:00.

There is no admission charge for home schooled kids or for the education program, however, adults pay only the regular admission price.

Each month the education program will vary and cover one of the areas that Texas Discovery Gardens specializes in. The program will be adapted to a varied age group of participants. You can come early and/or stay after to enjoy the other aspects of TDG while you’re here: the indoor butterfly house and insectarium, the varied outdoor gardens, the Snake and Reptile Shack, the rock-climbing wall and arial ladder in the Outdoor Playscape, along with the wide variety of gardens.

The classes are held in either The Pavilion or the Multipurpose Room. No reservations are required so you can drop in at the last minute but if you can fill out the form below it will help us in planning accordingly. If you would like to take advantage of this program but just want to come on your own and not participate in the educational program, that’s fine, we have many outdoor areas that include picnic benches and you can come at any time during the first Thursday of the month.
