Located 16 miles south of downtown Dallas in Cedar Hill, Dogwood Canyon is part of the White Rock Escarpment. Nowhere in North Texas can one find a greater variety of rare species than in Dogwood Canyon. Plants and animals from east, west and central Texas converge here, making the Canyon the only place in the world where one can find the Black-chinned Hummingbird of west Texas nesting in the flowering dogwood tree of east Texas.
Audubon owns or manages over 200 acres of nearly pristine wildlife habitat in the Canyon. Because the property neighbors university, county, and state lands, it is part of a nearly 3,000 acre greenbelt in southwest Dallas County. As of Grand Opening (September 10-11, 2011), there are 1.65 miles of trail winding up the Canyon (the West Rim Trail). The ½ mile, ADA-accessible Canyon Floor Trail will be completed this spring. The Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center is open to the public and will provide science education initially to 5,000 school students on an annual basis from the surrounding DFW Metroplex.

Meet friends, share local news and bring a chair and sit a while!
