Catch the Monarch Butterfly Migration
Free guided tours every Saturday, 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. through Nov. 11
The George W. Bush Presidential Center again offers its popular Fall Native Texas Park tours every Saturday at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. through November 11, weather permitting.
The Fall Native Texas Park Tours are free; however, space is limited and tours are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
“The Bush Center’s Native Texas Park showcases a variety of native plants including Blackland Prairie grasses and seasonal wildflowers, and clearings that provide native habitat for birds,” said Mrs. Laura Bush. “The park is home to milkweed plants, which make us a prime site for spotting the millions of beautiful monarch butterflies migrating through North Texas this fall.”
Led by docents from the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum, the free guided tours walk visitors through the one-mile network of trails on the Bush Center's grounds. Guests should meet at the sign posted at the Museum’s entrance at least 10 minutes before tour start time. Space is limited and tours are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
For visitors with time constraints, self-guided tours are free every day of the year, from sunrise to sunset. Comfortable shoes are recommended for walking the trails. Each season brings beautiful changes to the prairie landscape. Park brochures and additional materials about the Native Texas Park are available here.
Located at 2943 SMU Boulevard on the SMU campus, the Bush Center is accessible via the Mockingbird Station stop of the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) System using the orange, red, or blue lines.
