Inaugural Earth Day Texas Expeditions
Earth Day Texas (EDTx), the world’s largest nonprofit annual public green exhibition, is launching a year-round event series, Earth Day Texas Expeditions, to help the adventurous discover natural hidden gems around North Texas, spend time with experts and discover some of the most beautiful and ecologically signifi cant destinations during half-day and fullday trips.
The fi rst expedition is slated for October 15 at the John Bunker Sands Wetland Center, 25 miles southeast of Dallas on 2,000 acres of manmade wetlands. Participants will take part in an interactive exhibit, a fully equipped research lab to study the landscape, animals and boardwalks extending into the living wetland.
EDTx will schedule trips that highlight Texas’ environmentally friendly areas. Enthusiasts will explore ways to protect their neighboring air, water and lands through education and research. Future EDTx EXP destinations may include Caddo Lake, Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, Trinity River Audubon Center and the Great Trinity Forest. Each of these intimate, immersive experiences will be led by conservation experts that will cover the wildlife, historic background and environmental significance of each destination.
