Spring has finally sprung! Now that the weather is warming up, it’s the perfect time to explore the great outdoors! What better place to do that than the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge? With over 3,600 acres for visitors to explore the Nature Center is one of the largest city-owned centers in the United States. The Nature Center offers an extensive list of monthly things to do. This is the perfect kid-friendly outdoor activity for a Saturday or Sunday funday! Check out one of their family friendly nature hikes, kayak/canoe tours or educational programs. See the complete list monthly activities on the Nature Center's Calendar.
Mark your calendar for the 21st annual Buffalo Boogie on Saturday, May 11th! This is the Nature Center’s annual event to raise financial support for the herd of Bison that call the Refuge home. In 1973, the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge donated three bison to the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge. Since then the herd has grown and serves many purposes for the Nature Center like land management, recreation and conservation. The Buffalo Boogie is a 5K & 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk (the 5K Chip-Timed Run on a USATF certified course).
