Hike led by LLELA Director Richard Freiheit and UNT ecology instructor Dr. Jaime Baxter-Slye.
Barn Owl Ridge, an area within LLELA, is not normally accessible to the public. The hike will be conducted in an approximate 30-acre native Texas Blackland Prairie reconstruction site. Over 650 taxa from fungi to chordata have been documented at Barn Owl Ridge within LLELA, with 196 plants identified.
Porta potties are located at the dam outfall parking lot and the classroom area. After the hike, meet at air-conditioned classroom for snacks and discussion about our finds. You can then proceed on your own to LLELA's public trails until closing at 7p.m.
Suggested donation amount is $10. Donations will benefit Native Prairies Association of Texas (conservation & land trust organization) and LLELA, Lake Lewisville Environmental Learning Area. Donations are non-refundable.
