Welcome to the Great Trinity Forest

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 120 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. 

A branch 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. Come explore our center by foot, bike, or boat, or signup for a class, attend an event, or volunteer with us, and help maintain the wild side of Dallas.
