Nature Center Notes

  • Bison are off exhibit for the fall/winter. They will be moved for public viewing in spring
  • Sign up for holiday break activities such as Bison Feeding Hayrides. This is the only way to see bison in the fall/winter
  • 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.

Bison Feeding Hayrides are scheduled for next week for the Fall Break on Tuesday (26) & Wednesday (28). Bring your family out and learn about our bison and provide them with a snack. Click HERE to register. For questions, 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.
