WH2H – TX – Dallas – Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge
Join WH2H Ambassador Ashley for a group hike at the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge
The Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge (FWNC&R) is a natural area comprised of forests, prairies, and wetlands allowing you to step back in time and experience what the Fort Worth/Dallas Metroplex was like in the early 20th century. The inception of the FWNC&R was based on protecting our local watershed. In 1914 when Lake Worth was built land was purchased around the West Fork of the Trinity River by the City of Fort Worth to protect the quality of drinking water for the Fort Worth community. With great persistence from some local citizens, particularly the Fort Worth Audubon Society, the Park Board designated some land in 1964 to create a wildlife sanctuary and nature preserve for our community and the FWNC&R was born.
Notes: -Please be punctual, and remember to leave time to park, walk to our meeting place and be present for our stretching time before take-off!
