Guided Hikes, Early Morning Birding and River Adventures just added!  New Features:  Big Spring Preserve and Early Morning Kayak Trips!

Trinity River Audubon Center will be CLOSED Thursday, November 23rd, and Friday, November 24th for the Thanksgiving Holiday.  We hope you have a great holiday and look forward to seeing you when we open Saturday, November 25th.

Trinity River Audubon Center is located just ten miles south of downtown Dallas, but you'll feel a world away. Our center is your gateway to explore the amazing resources of the 6,000-acre Great Trinity Forest, the largest urban hardwood forest in the United States. Get to know a diverse community of plant and animal species and our unique mixture of bottomland hardwood forest, wetland, and prairie habitat. A part of the City of Dallas-Trinity River Corridor Project, the center's 130 acres sit on a former illegal dump site, now a reclaimed haven for a vast array of birds and other wildlife in an increasingly urbanized metropolitan area. 

As part of the National Audubon Society, Trinity River Audubon Center is a nonprofit organization, which means supporting us by visiting, telling a friend, or becoming a member helps to educate tens of thousands of North Texas students about science, conservation, and the ecosystems in which they live. Checkout our events, sign up for a class, or simply drop by for a hike.
