A panel of Martin and Denton County nature enthusiasts will further discuss these spaces, plus other Denton County and nearby attractions, such as Bob Jones Nature Center, which sits amid 700 acres of Eastern Cross Timbers habitat along Grapevine Lake. Held by US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), it has over 20 miles of natural trails.
