Nature Center Notes

  • Bison are NOW on exhibit along Buffalo Road
  • 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.

To slow the spread and reduce health care impacts related to COVID-19, the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge (FWNC&R) is temporarily closed until further notice.

All essential staff will report during this time to implement natural resource management plans, provide care for the bison herd and other animal ambassadors, and develop future educational programs in preparation for reopening. Also during this time, two construction projects to improve future visitors’ experience will be able to make progress.

The FWNC&R staff thank all of our visitors for their support and encourage the public to follow the FWNC&R on Facebook and here on our website.

To slow the spread and reduce health care impacts related to COVID-19, the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge (FWNC&R) is temporarily closed effective at 5 p.m. March 21 through April 3 or until further notice.

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.
