Mission:

To promote the conservation and restoration of Tandy Hills Natural Area (THNA) as a rare remaining example of native prairie that was indigenous to most of the Fort Worth area.

To facilitate use of THNA as an education and recreation resource for experiencing and understanding the natural environment of predevelopment Fort Worth.

To increase awareness of the importance of protecting and preserving natural areas through the annual Fort Worth Prairie Fest and other activities.

About Tandy Hills Natural Area:

Tandy Hills Natural Area (THNA) is a 160-acre indigenous remnant of Fort Worth prairie located in the heart of Fort Worth, Texas. The land was obtained by the City of Fort Worth Parks Department in the 1960s and designated a “natural area” in 1987. Since 1990, the park has been managed by the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge.

Noted for its unusually complete collection of prairie flora, THNA contains more than 500 native plant species. The show of spring wildflowers is unsurpassed in the Metroplex. The land is a living demonstration of how most of Fort Worth and the Great Plains appeared in predevelopment times.

Earthx, formerly Earth Day Texas, is an annual, outdoor festival seeking to elevate environmental awareness and influence the way North Texans think, live and work. The family-friendly and free event allows leaders in the corporate, academic and non-profits worlds to unite and show North Texans how green lifestyles choices can lower their cost of living, improve their health, and help save the environment.

 

 

The North Texas Master Naturalists are Dallas County's volunteers for conservation. We lead hikes, give educational programs, engage in scientific research, and work on the land, all towards the goal of helping North Texans appreciate and preserve the natural systems they rely upon.
