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.

We provide a variety of events, educational workshops and classes. We have programs for schools, scouting, seniors and more. There are gardens, a compost demo area, as well as areas for birding and wildlife viewing.

Do you believe in the oneness of existence, that we are all part of an interconnected web and that to harm another is to harm ourselves?  Do you have faith in humanity and belief in human potential? Is your spirituality accepting of other’s varied paths?  Does the natural world inspire and sustain you? Then you will feel at home with Earth Rhythms.

Tucked into the folds of the soft rolling hills of north central Texas, situated beneath the Lewisville Dam, the Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area (LLELA) occupies a unique ecological position in the landscape of North America. It is here where the northwestern-most extent of the bottomland forests stretch fingers into the southern end of the tallgrass prairie of the Midwest; where the Elm Fork of the Trinity River winds its way out of the sandy uplands of the dry Cross Timbers into the deep, rich soils of the Blackland prairies; where agricultural lands intergrade with ranching and a rapidly growing urban expanse.

LLELA offers a variety of family activities such as birding, hiking, kayaking and more.

LLELA provides a variety of educational workshops for students and holds Project WILD workshops for teachers, home school parents, scout leaders and others. It is involved in several restoration and research projects. It offers volunteer opportunites in restoration and research, preservation, and education.

We meet the third Wednesday of every month in the Azalea Room of the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens. We offer outings (backpacking, camping, hiking)--including backpacking in New Mexico, canoeing in Arkansas, and day hiking at the Ft. Worth Nature Center. We have outing activities for every age and skill level. Our conservation efforts include fighting for clean air, clean water, and habitat protection.

Texas Master Naturalists aims to develop a corps of well-informed volunteers to provide education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within their communities. Many communities and organizations rely on such citizen volunteers for implementing youth education programs; for operating parks, nature centers, and natural areas; and for providing leadership in local natural resource conservation efforts. In fact, a short supply of dedicated and well-informed volunteers is often cited as a limiting factor for community-based conservation efforts.

Texas Master Naturalists not only get their feet wet and their hands dirty, but while doing so they spend time in a natural setting, learn about different plant and animal species, and maybe even find something new: One member, in fact, discovered a new plant species.

To become a Texas Master Naturalist, each volunteer:

Escape the concrete of the city and hike over 6.5 miles of self-guided or interpreted nature trails that wind though the diverse habitats of our 289-acre wildlife sanctuary, including tall grass prairie, bottomland hardwood and limestone escarpment. Take advantage of the opportunity to encounter many species of birds, insects and animals.  

The Heard offers programs for adults and children, field trips, guided nature trails and animal presentations, night hikes, and more.

Exotic spicy fragrances greet those visiting the Heard native plant garden in spring. As early as mid-February the Red Bay and Agaritas begin to flower sending sweet saffron scents throughout the garden. Buffalo currents begin their six weeks of fragrant flowering the trout lilies slyly emerge from the leaf litter under the live oaks. There is always something new to see, smell and enjoy!

Texas Discovery Gardens' mission is to teach effective ways to restore, conserve and preserve nature in the urban environment, with a focus on gardening organically and sustainably.

Located at historic Fair Park in Dallas, Texas Discovery Gardens is a year-round organic urban oasis filled with natural wonders for visitors of all ages. 

Immerse yourself in tropical butterflies in our brand new Rosine Smith Sammons Butterfly House and Insectarium. Meander down our canopy walkway as you see hundreds of free-flying tropical butterflies and our collection of tropical plants.

Outside, wander through 7.5 acres of organically maintained garden displays that feature native and adapted plants. From spring through fall, you may see all stages of the butterfly's life cycle (egg, caterpillar, pupae and adult) in our native butterfly habitat! Or, stroll through our heirloom rose garden, EarthKeepers veggie garden, picturesque Grand Allee du Meadows, and more..,

Texas Discovery Gardens offers classes and workshops for all ages.

Take a refreshing walk into the wide-open spaces of a beautiful meadow, rich in floral diversity that is reminiscent of the tallgrass Blackland Prairie that once existed here. The Connemara Meadow Preserve is just such a place. This family land was set aside by Frances Williams and is owned and perpetually maintained by the Connemara Conservancy Foundation.

Members may take advantage of the meadow at any time and non-members are invited to join one of our Open-to-the-Public events that generally take place on weekends. Both Members and guests are asked to abide by our policies.

The Meadow is not a park but a preserve, managed so as to preserve and restore the natural biologically diverse ecosystem that is native to the area. It is made available to the public as a place to revive the spirit while teaching the importance of nature and biodiversity in the world where we live. To minimize impact on nature no pets or bikes are allowed.

The Commenara Meadow Preserve is located in north Plano on Alma Dr, just south of Bethany Dr. (Note: entrance is in Allen).
