The National Art Educators Association (NAEA) is having their national conference in Fort Worth March 7-10 2013. My wife is an art teacher for Fort Worth ISD, and is on the planning committee. They are looking for different activities for the conference attendees to do. One of the suggestions was to take an architectural tour of downtown.

I have been reading this forum for a few years now, but never have much to contribute myself. My wife asked me to see if anyone on here would know where to look for volunteer tour guides. They are planning on having about 10 to 15 people in each tour group.

Thanks in advance for all suggestions.

You may also want to look offer tours of the Trinity Trail by bicycle. The Stockyards is a short ride to the north, Trinity Park is nice to the west (and you can get into the Botanical Gardens from there).

She could also look into Cowtown Segway Tours / Visit the Trinity River with Fort Worth Kayak Adventures...

I lead architectural walking tours of downtown when visiting groups come to the city. I would be willing to do this, but I have a standing commitment on one Saturday morning per month. At this time, I do not know what the date for this event is in March of 2013. I could possibly lead a tour on one of the other days, or possibly Saturday afternoon.

Thanks for the suggestions. I will be sure to link her to this thread.

They are looking for several activities to do in the area, so all suggestions are appreciated. She has also talked to someone about doing a tour of homes in Fairmount.
