After the success of our Native Prairie Walks last year, we decided to coordinate frequent Nature Walks led by our local experts.
These are also posted on the public calendar. Click here for the calendar.

Briars, thorns & poison ivy, oh, my! with John Snowden
Where: Cedar Ridge Preserve, 7171 Mountain Creek Pkwy, Dallas 75249, Meet at the office.
Join John Snowden for a walk to see spring flowers and grasses.
Imagine the hills without trees. Imagine you are able to look off into the plains & watch thousands of bison grazing peacefully through beautiful spring flowers. Imagine that's why they named the city Grand Prairie.
Walk through some of those grasses, vines, and flowers with me. Watch pollinators go about their work, gathering nectar or pollen. Learn that bees are more interested in their work than stinging us. Watch butterflies flit & beetles gather on flowers. Learn different kinds of flowers & grasses, and if we have time, learn about an ancient streambed now stranded high on a hilltop!
Please bring insect repellent, sunscreen, closed toed shoes.
In case of inclement weather, please check with Cedar Ridge Preserve on whether the trails are open. https://audubondallas.org/cedar-ridge-preserve-2/
