Explore the Great Trinity Forest
Just eight miles from downtown Dallas, the 7,000-acre Great Trinity Forest beckons urban explorers to spend a day of discovery from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., March 29, as a guest of the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture, in partnership with the Trinity River Audubon Center and the Trinity Trust.
The forest encompasses three ecosystems and is home to an incredibly diverse community of plants and animals. Guests will also learn about the importance of trees to our city, the ways this forest is key to our future sustainability, and the planned 17-mile Trinity Spine Trail from the Audubon Center to the arboretum, with poetry positioned along the route.
The four-hour program includes a presentation inside the Audubon and lunch, followed by a tour of the trails outdoors. Children 5 and upmay participate in a special program hosted by the Audubon Center that teaches them to be active stewards of our lands and highlights the wonders of nature all around.
