Nature in the City: Trinity River Audubon


On our last break we took a visit to the Trinity River Audubon south of Dallas. Not much was going on in the way of wildlife, but it was still a beautiful place to visit. I had no idea the place even existed until a few months ago. It was cold and windy the day we were there so the wildlife was probably hiding as well. I am sure migratory birds enjoy a nice stopover here.

Now some photos:

The education center. It hosts an area for school groups to eat lunch, nice restrooms, and great exhibits, including a hands on build your own river exhibit. Pretty cool!

Chris and his dad. A bit bummed the focus didn’t get to Chris’ face; it was a last second photo I took.

Hope to go back in the spring and see what is blooming!
