Get out of the house, be active and enjoy the great outdoors! This spring break check out the best kept secret in Fort Worth – the Fort Worth Nature and Refuge Center. Check out the canoe & kayak tours or take a hike and learn about wildflowers or nature at nightfall. Want to learn a little more about the world around you? Enjoy many of the fun, hands-on classes like “Aromatherapy, The Power of Plantsor learn about birds inBird Song”. Just in need of some fresh air? Enjoy over 20 miles of trails or even go to Prairie Dog Town.

I spent half of Saturday enjoying the fresh air during one of the canoeing tours. Don’t worry, beginners and pro canoe-ers alike will enjoy this tour. Don’t have a canoeing buddy? Come anyway, and you will be paired up with one of the expert volunteers! This is a great way to learn about the critters that call Fort Worth home.
