Nature Center Notes

  • Bison are now on exhibit and can be seen along Buffalo Road.
  • Please ask at the Gatehouse if any trails are not accessible.
  • Sign up your kids for Summer Natural History Adventures. Click SUMMER CAMP above for a brochure.
  • All professional photography requires a permit. Call 817-392-7410 for more information.
  • Please keep your dogs on leash at all times and please dispose of their waste appropriately; not on trails.

Due to the recent amounts of rain, there is no water craft activity on the river at the Nature Center. Please call for updates on when such activities will be permitted. You can call the Visitors’ Center at (817) 392-7410.

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life by enrolling and educating our community in the preservation and protection of natural areas while standing as an example of these same principles and values in North Central Texas.
