Lewisville Public Library: 'The Wild Lands of Denton County' - Lewisville

Jun 8 2024 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm
Lewisville Public LIbrary
1197 W Main St
Lewisville , TX

Denton County is home to three of the five largest — ranging from 2600 to 3700 acres— nature parks and preserves in North Texas: Clear Creek Natural Heritage Center (Denton), Ray Roberts Lake State Park (Pilot Point), and Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area, called LLELA. That’s bragging rights!

Get to know them all — rich bottomland woods, wide open prairies, upland forests, wetlands, river and creek riparian corridors, and more — in this talk.

Amy Martin, author of Wild DFW: Explore the Amazing Nature Around Dallas-Fort Worth, will share excerpts and photos from those chapters in the book, woven with the dramatic story of recovering from a traumatically broken neck by walking dirt trails at these and other locations.
