Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival is fun and educational

See also

The Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival is packed with fun, and it's also educational. If you check the schedule, you'll find a whole series of presentations given by local experts, as well as celebrities from HGTV/DIY Network, which sponsors the Designers Stage.

The education also overflows out into the gardens. Click the video accompanying this article to hear from Don Kendzior of the Audubon Society as he talked about hummingbirds in Central Florida and throughout the United States. The Audubon Society is sponsoring the Hummingbirds at Home Garden, a colorful, serene spot that shows how gardeners can set up an attractive environment for the busy little birds.

If you'd like to take advantage of the many educational opportunities, look online or pick up a schedule as soon as you arrive at the park. You can find the HGTV and DIY Network schedule here.
