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.
