Dogwood Canyon is part of the National Audubon Society and is managed by the state office, Audubon Texas. Since 1905, the mission of Audubon is to protect birds and the places they need, today and tomorrow, throughout the Americas using science, advocacy, education and on-the-ground conservation. Dogwood Canyon is an area of nearly 200 acres of nearly pristine wildlife habitat. Part of the White Rock Escarpment, it is home to a wide variety of plants and animals, including rare species. The Dogwood Center has 3 miles of trails, a children’s Nature Play area, picnic area, indoor and outdoor bird viewing areas and education animal ambassadors. The Center is open to the public to engage and connect our communities to nature and to provide science education for thousands of school children.
Volunteers support Dogwood Canyon with trail building, citizen science projects, outdoor education, guided trail hikes, invasive species eradication, habitat restoration and preservation, and service as education docents and visitor docents.
