Visitors can explore native Texas environments such as Blackland Prairie, Post Oak Savannah, and Cross Timbers Forest.

The free tours of the Native Texas Park are offered every Saturday at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m., weather permitting. Usually lasting between 30 and 40 minutes, visitors are guided through the winding network of walking trails. Space is limited and tours are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Native Prairies Association of Texas, Fort Worth Chapter: Stella Rowan Hike - Fort Worth

Apr 11 2018 - 5:45pm
Stella Rowan Prairie pavilion Ft Worth , TX

Guided wildflower walk at Stella Rowan Prairie, located on the grounds of Tarrant County Resource Connection. We will gather at 5:45 pm to sign Liability Release Forms, and begin the walk at 6 pm, concluding about 15 minutes before dusk. Be sure to wear appropriate clothing: long pants, closed toe shoes, etc.  Please bring your own water bottle. Watch Facebook and the website for details on where to park and meet everyone. Absolutely NO parking on the side of the road (i.e., not in a designated parking lot), as this really is a pet peeve of the property managers and doing so could get us uninvited to use the prairie for future group visits.
