Nature Center Notes

  • Bison have been moved to their winter pasture. They will not be on public display until spring.
  • Sign up for a bison-feeding hayride during the holiday breaks.
  • The western portion of Riverbottom Trail is closed

If you are interested seeing some rare birds, park at the Canoe Launch parking area, hike east on the Riverbottom Trail and you will find 2 Tundra Swans. For information, please 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.
