Enjoy the Great Outdoors with Guided Native Texas Park Tours at the George W. Bush Presidential Center

September 9, 2016

DALLAS (September 9, 2016) – The George W. Bush Presidential Center is offering its popular fall Native Texas Park tours, scheduled most Saturdays through November 12. The tours are free of charge and led by docents from the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum.

“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 that will migrate through North Texas this fall.”

Weather permitting, the guided tours begin at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. on September 17 and 24, October 1, 8, 22, and 29, and November 5 and 12. Visitors walk through the one-mile network of trails on the Bush Center’s grounds. Tours are free; however, 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. Tour guides and additional materials about the Native Texas Park are available on the Bush Center website.

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.
