This program will explore the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge (FWNC&R) and its journey through the three states that matter; a solid past, a fluid (liquid) present, and an ethereal (gaseous) future.  Now in its 53rd year of existence, the FWNC&R has a long and colorful history featuring the best of north central Texas natural history and Fort Worth cultural support.  The FWNC&R’s present consists of building upon the solid foundation built over the past half century to provide the amenities necessary to entice modern Fort Worth residents to battle nature deficit disorder while continuing to protect and preserve the natural resource.  The direction of the FWNC&R’s future is contingent upon the support of the region’s conservation and philanthropic communities.  Working in concert, we will continue the tradition of maintaining the FWNC&R as the preeminent natural area and environmental education institution in the region.
