Nature Hike led by BRIT Board Member and Fort Worth Nature Center Board Member, Bob O’Kennon.

Join us at the Fort Worth Nature Center as we step back in time and experience what the Fort Worth/Dallas Metroplex was like in the early 20th century. FWNC&R covers 3,621 acres of natural area comprised of forests, prairies, and wetlands and includes over 20 miles of hiking trails, making the park one of the largest city-owned nature centers in the United States. 

  • Bring: Water, hats, sunscreen, hiking sticks, and a sack lunch. We will provide snacks and refills of ice water.
  • Cost: $10 Non-Members/$5 BRIT Members/FWNCR Members Free
  • Pets: Are permitted but must be strictly supervised, cleaned up after, and on a leash. 
  • Location: 9601 Fossil Ridge Road, Fort Worth, TX 76135

Please bring your Membership cards with you on the hike. Carpooling is suggested. We will meet at BRIT to leave by 7:15 a.m. If you want to carpool, please email Tammie Crole by Friday, April 27th at noon.  REGISTER HERE



Which City is the Wildest? Bring Your Cell Phones on the Hike to Participate!

Cities around the world will compete on April 27 – 30, 2018 to see which urban area has the most nature and the most engaged residents! This City Nature Challenge will include more than 60 cities from 17 countries around the world including 7 metro areas here in Texas: Amarillo, Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth, El Paso, Houston, Lower Rio Grande Valley, and San Antonio.

If you live in or around one of these areas, show the world just how much nature we have here in Texas! It’s easy to participate by joining an event or making observations on your own using the iNaturalist app. Take a picture of a wild animal, plant, or fungi, upload it to iNaturalist (www.inaturalist.org), and the online community will help you accurately identify the species.  Download instructions for iNaturalist
