Many Fort Worth and area residents have explored the Garden for years. They may think they know every corner, every path and every tree. In fact, our own Garden holds many surprises. For example, a new species of gall wasp was recently identified on Garden grounds. The story of the wasp’s discovery has much to tell us about the importance of citizen science, the diversity of life around us and the many mysteries waiting to be uncovered in our own backyards.
The blazing summer heat shows no sign of relenting, and it’s safe to say that most area residents are fed up with 100-degree-plus temperatures. Since there’s not much we can do except wait for fall, we here at the Garden invite you to find refreshment at our many ponds, fountains and streams.
