FOCP Bug Walk at Kiest Conservation Area
Sunday, June 9, 2019   11:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Join us for a walk through the native prairie meadow at the Kiest Conservation Area in Oak Cliff on Sunday, June 9. The Conservation Area is an 88-acre tract of land with an island of native Texas prairie. Walk will be led by John Watts, entomologist at Texas Discovery Gardens. He will share his wealth of knowledge about butterflies, insects and nature in general on our walk. Sponsored by the Friends of Oak Cliff Parks.

Over 150 wildflower and grass species have been identified in the Conservation Area. While here, also visit the newly opened, mile-long Meadow Loop Trail. Everyone is invited, and there is no charge. Closed-toe shoes are recommended. Water and insect repellent will be provided.

Where to park: The address below is the address for the tennis center within the Conservation Area. Do not park there. Instead you will need to go another quarter mile to the intersection of Hampton Rd. and Kiest Blvd. and enter the parking area (off Hampton) at the southeast corner of that intersection. Park by the kiosk.

Location: Kiest Conservation Area, 2179 W. Kiest Blvd., Dallas 75224
