Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Garden – Dallas, TX
2016 Thea Award recipient for Outstanding Achievement as a Science/Discovery Garden. VS&R was the project lead. We worked with the Arboretum for over ten years in developing this project from interpretive master planning and fundraising, to concept and content development, text writing, original graphics through final implementation.
With over 150 individual kid friendly activities, the eight-acre children’s garden features 17 galleries or “outdoor learning rooms,” each with a unique theme, to teach and demonstrate science concepts. Exhibits are designed to address national standards in life, earth, and environmental sciences. Also within the garden is the Exploration Center, a 9,100-square-foot building that offers exhibits and interactive technology to engage children.
