Nature Center Notes

  • Bison can be found in the East and Northeast pastures. Keep your eyes open for calves.
  • The Boardwalk is officially OPEN
  • The Cross Timbers Trail and western portion of Riverbottom Trail are closed.

The “Rock Walk” scheduled for July 15 has been cancelled. This program will be rescheduled in September.

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.
