Enjoy Spring Weather With Native Texas Park Tours




Scheduled on Saturdays through June 2 at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m., the George W. Bush Presidential Center again offers its tremendously popular, docent-guided Bluebonnet Tours. Along with the impressive bluebonnets, the Native Texas Park features seasonal wildflowers, native grasses, tree-shaded lawns and clearings providing habitat for butterflies, birds and other wildlife. On the grounds of the Bush Center, visitors can explore native Texas environments such as blackland prairie, post oak savannah and cross timbers forest.

“This 14-acre urban park reflects President George W. Bush and Mrs. Laura Bush’s longstanding commitment to environmental conservation and restoration,” says Brig. Gen. Patrick X. Mordente, director of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum

Free tours of the Native Texas Park are offered every Saturday at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m., weather permitting. Usually lasting between 30 and 40 minutes, visitors are guided through the winding network of walking trails. Space is limited and tours are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Self-guided tours are an option for visitors with time constraints available from sunrise to sunset every day of the year. Comfortable shoes are recommended for walking the trails. Each season brings beautiful changes to the prairie landscape, and pets are welcome.

To book a large group, call 214-346-1650 or email bush43visitors@nara.gov. For more information, visit Tinyurl.com/GeorgeBushLibrary.
