Learn about tne North Texas ecotone with Wild DFW author Amy Martin. How do tilted layers of bedrock shape our three ecoregions, foster a plethora of soil types, and lead to our plant and wildlife diversity? From the ancient inland ocean and melting ice caps that forged North Texas, to the goliath creeks and many forks of the Trinity, get clear on how water shapes our local landscape.

Afterward, enjoy a Spring Equinox walk the Blackjack Trail, recreating the hike from LLELA's chapter in Wild DFW. Amy, Scott Keister, and Vinny Merrill will point out the creek where ebonywing damselflies can be found, places where the Blackland Prairie and Eastern Cross Timbers intersect, and the borrow pit for the Lewisville Lake dam dirt as an example of go-back land gone bad.
