Cedar Ridge Preserve is a natural habitat of 600 acres featuring about 9 miles of trails, native trees, grasses and wildflowers, butterfly gardens, limited picnic areas and wild mammals, birds, insects and reptiles.

Please be aware that wheeled vehicles of ALL types, including bicycles, are prohibited on the trails. NOTE: CRP cannot accommodate large groups because there are not a lot of seating, tables, or other picnic equipment.

Located 16 miles south of downtown Dallas in Cedar Hill, Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center at Cedar Hill (DCAC) will celebrate its grand opening with a free weekend of activities Saturday, September 10 and Sunday, September 11.

Dogwood Canyon contains the widest variety of rare species in North Texas as plants and animals from east, west and Central Texas converge there.  Sustainably built for LEED certification, the Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center, with its miles of trails, nature-play areas, native gardens and educational programs enables visitors to experience this “wild and special place.”  The opening of the center makes Dallas County, which also has the Trinity River Audubon Center, the only county in the country served by two Audubon centers.

The mission of the John Bunker Sands Wetland Center is to both educate the public and provide research opportunities in the areas of water quality and supply, wildlife management, and wetland systems.These ideas reflect and extend the vision of Bunker Sands, a holistic ranch management advocate, who directed the creation of over 2,100 wetland acres on Rosewood Ranches properties in Kaufman, Henderson, Ellis, and Navarro counties.

The constructed wetlands included seasonal emergent wetlands, scrub swamps and flooded bottomland hardwood forest. Several of the original wetlands occurred at Rosewood’s Seagoville Ranch, the site of the Center and of the East Fork Wetland Project, developed and operated by North Texas Municipal Water District.

Rogers Wildlife Rehabilitation Center is a nonprofit wildlife rescue organization specalizing in the rescue and rehabilitation of injured, sick, or orphaned birds of all types. Our goal is to restore the health and independence of these precious creatures so they may be released back into their natural environment.
Located at the edge of the Trinity River, bordering the Great Trinity Forest, the Center provides wonderful opportunities for birders to view migratory birds though out the year. 

Over the last decade, RWRC has provided medical treatment and care for more than thirty five thousand birds.  The majority of birds that we receive come to us with life threatening injuries as a result of abuse, bird strikes, animal attacks, nest displacement (orphaned) and natural or man-made disasters.  We provide all medical treatment at the Wildlife Center with the exception of surgeries that require anesthesia.  Routinely we treat infections, wounds, broken legs, broken wings, head and back injuries.  Recovery time, depending on the injury, ranges from three days to six months.

The Bob Jones Nature Center and Preserve provides a unique opportunity to explore and discover. We’re here to help you appreciate the beauty and understand the importance of our Cross Timbers ecosystem. Come to hike, to bird, or to learn more about this precious North Central Texas habitat.

Fort Worth Audubon Society Field Trips are open to all, members and nonmembers, beginners to world-class birders. We especially want to encourage and welcome first time birders to come on our local trips in the Fort Worth area. These trips are an excellent way to get started learning the birds and the best locations and seasons to find them. There are always people on these trips who are willing and able to answer any question about birds. Our website also offers a discussion forum.

The Trinity River Audubon Center is the flagship Center for Audubon’s education and conservation initiatives in Texas. Education programs address the need for students to improve and strengthen their science and critical thinking skills while aligning with the TEKS state-mandated curriculum. The Center, designed by architect Antoine Predock, 2006 AIA Gold Medalist, provides direct access to a myriad of opportunities for the citizens of Dallas: nature viewing, hiking, picnicking. In the Dallas Trails Master Plan, the numerous citywide trail systems are designed to connect to the Trinity River Audubon Center, providing a premier trail destination location. Once this happens, individuals and families from all over the Metroplex may ride, blade, run, or walk to the Center.
