Revel in a photo-filled tour of the top nature spaces in North Texas from Amy Martin’s Wild DFW: Explore the Amazing Nature Around Dallas-Fort Worth (Timber Press).

Martin nearly died four years ago from a severely broken neck. She learned to walk again by hiking natural trails. Those hikes are an integral part of Wild DFW. Hear her inspiring story woven with rhapsodic passages from the book. Learn how a little knowledge about natural history and ecology can transform your perception of North Texas nature. Astounding color photos bring alive peak experiences from the 25 featured hiking adventures through hardwood bottomland forests and Eastern Cross Timbers, soaring limestone escarpments, lush wetlands, and rare remnants of Blackland and Fort Worth Prairies. Get to know a diverse community of volunteers working for nature.

If you would like to satisfy your savory or your sweet tooth cravings, please bring your favorite appetizer, cookie, bar or cake to share, and don't forget to bring your own non-alcoholic drink of choice. We will encourage guests to arrive early, between 6:40 to 6:45 PM to partake of food prior to the start of the meeting.
