Cedar Ridge Preserve Field Trip

7171 Mountain Creek Parkway, Dallas, TX 75249

Carpooling recommended; parking very limited on weekends.

Tom Willard introduces the Blackland Chapter to the prairie parts of Cedar Ridge Preserve in southwest Dallas County. The county’s highest elevation at 755 feet, the 600 acres (formerly the Dallas Nature Center) offers some astounding views and a wide variety of habitats. Trail map.

It will take 90 minutes for the complete tour. Though it will involve quite a bit of walking, we will start with the close, easy walking sites, and then progress to the more challenging. You can bow out at any time.

Discover some well-established prairies, and examine overgrown prairies and those being restored. (A BNPAT workday will be the following Saturday.) We’ll discuss the challenging aspect with prairie restoration and maintenance. 

Comfortable work shoes or boots, hat, and sunglasses recommended. Bring a water bottle and insect repellent. Questions? Email thikesto@aol.com, text or call 469-766-7572.
