Hawaii does not observe Daylight Saving Time and neither does Arizona (although the Navajo Nation, in northeastern Arizona, does). For many years, most of Indiana did not observe Daylight Saving Time with the exception of 10 counties. Beginning in 2006, all of Indiana now observes Daylight Saving Time.  None of the US dependencies observe DST. This includes American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, Northern Mariana Islands, the US Minor Outlying Islands, and the US Virgin Islands.

Construction on the $40 million project began in 2008 and is located seven miles northwest of downtown on 240 acres. The land was donated by Gentner Drummond and Tom Atherton. One hundred eighty acres are being conserved in their natural state of woodlands and prairie with walking and tram trails. The master plan calls for 15 major theme gardens, 60 specialty gardens, a 3,000-seat amphitheater, a conservatory, an education complex, an interfaith chapel, and a three-story observation tower.
Guests are encouraged to bring water and insect repellent.
