Trinity River Audubon Center Status:

Updated April 1, 2020 at 10:00am CT: In order to protect the health and well-being of our staff, volunteers, and visitors and to help stop the spread of COVID-19, we are also closing Trinity River Audubon Center and our trails through April 30. In addition, all Audubon events and events held in our spaces will be cancelled or postponed through April 30th.

For community members who have programs scheduled at the center, we will contact you to reschedule your program or possibly move it to another format. Please follow us on Facebook for the most up to date information on events. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at TRAC@audubon.org.

If you would like to enjoy a nature experience, the AT&T trail is still open. You can find a map here.

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. 

Trinity River Audubon Center is a nonprofit organization supported, in part, by funds from the City of Dallas Park and Recreation Department.
