Are you one of those people who has wanted to help out Tandy Hills in a direct way? Here's your chance. Due to unusual spring rains, the most popular trails at Tandy Hills are overgrown with weeds and other plants. A small crew of volunteers is needed to clear the trails and other areas on a monthly basis, every first Saturday, from 8 am - Noon. Our new designation by the state as a Great Texas Wildlife Trail makes this work even more important. Sign up here: info@tandyhills.org.

Volunteers are needed to tag thousands of tires for removal by heavy equipment, to mow, to pick up debris and to restore a playground.

This month we will be working on our Butterfly and Wildflower beds, and clearing privet stumps.Come join us for all or part of the morning, the weather promises to be wonderful for working outdoors! Please bring your favorite shovel, privet pulling or gardening tools, work gloves or litter picker upper. Wear appropriate clothing for the weather and for working in a natural area (long pants, long sleeves, sturdy shoes, hat). Water and snacks will be provided.

O.S. Gray Natural Area has no restroom facilities, but Kroger is near by.

Come for a fun workshop at the Park Store making Earth Day crafts out of containers you might otherwise throw away. 

We will use clean, empty large cans to make great holders for kitchen or bathroom utensils and decorate the outside of the can with pictures, paint or paper. 

Bring your recycled magazines, copied photos or pictures for pasting on your cans.

This is a day of beautifying the Trinity River Corridor and working alongside corporate and community volunteers at Moore Park Gateway. Volunteers do not need to sponsor to participate and they don’t have to be a part of a corporation. Sign up on the website link. All the materials needed for that day (gloves, shovels, etc) will be provided. More details will be sent out as people sign up.

Living with the Trinity 

6:00 PM – Reception & Check In
6:30 – Screening Begins
7:30 – Discussion with the filmmakers

The film Living with the Trinity is an incisive look at the history of the Trinity River and its relationship with the people who have settled along its banks. By diving into the past, this film is able to explain why the river remains a rather invisible resource despite the ambitious public works projects planned around it and the millions of Texans who rely on the body of water for life. 

Managing our natural resources is a complex job. Not only does the Fort Worth Nature Center ensure abundant recreational opportunities and the infrastructure that goes along with that; they also apply an array of land management techniques to improve the health of the diverse habitats present on the Refuge; specifically targeting wildlife habitat to ensure connectivity and health of the system. Staff and volunteers of the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge lend a helping hand as the designated stewards of the Refuge and the ecosystem services that it provides.
