»Native Plants and Prairies DayNative Plants and Prairies Day10-3 at Bath House Cultural Center grounds by White Rock Lake Held by North Texas Master Naturalists This is a FREE family-oriented community event focused on Texas flora and fauna and the use of native plants in home landscapes as disease and drought-resistant alternatives to non-native species. Native plants and grasses have been an important part of Texas history. Birds, animals and insects all depend on these native plants to survive. We will have lots of animals, birds, bugs, snakes, and plants. There will be 30 minute wildflower and prairie walks guided by experts, informative speakers, and over 30 demonstration and information booths. For the first time, artists of nature themed works will be there, too. We'll once again have our popular raffle with gifts provided by event sponsors.

»Trinity Forest Trail Day HikeTrinity Forest Trail Day HikeYou've read about the proposed State park, the Audubon Center and the golf course, but have you BEEN to the Trinity Forest? Here's an opportunity. Three outings leaders rode bikes on the Trinity Forest Trail and AT&T Trail in April and we were impressed! This is a 3.25-mile hike to show you what we consider the best trail segments. Meet at 9:30 Saturday morning at the Joppa Preserve Trailhead parking lot to set up a car shuttle. We'll move return cars to another trailhead. To reach Joppa Preserve (a Dallas County park) from Downtown, take Interstate 45 south to Loop 12, exiting onto Loop 12 eastbound.  Almost immediately, exit right onto Texas 310 (South Central Expressway), then turn left in 0.4 mile onto River Oaks, the first street on your left. Follow River Oaks over the tracks and as far as possible, to the concrete parking area by the trailhead.  Reservations aren't needed. If the hike must be postponed due to high water, I'll post notice in this space. We should finish the hike before noon.
