The Wonders of Wetlands

Our Historical Interaction With Wetlands

What is the complicated history of man’s love/hate relationship with wetlands? In our second foray into the wonders of wetlands, we will explore why this valuable resource is beneficial from a historical aspect, why we should love them today — and why they continue to remain controversial.

This event will be held in a VIRTUAL format on Zoom.

Cost is per registration.

NEW Conservation Conversations

A Chat With Suzanne Tuttle

Join us for our new Conservation Conversations series this fall via Zoom! We will be sitting down with leaders in the conservation field to have a conversation about what conservation issues are most important to them during this time in our history. We will also explore how the Friends (and all of us) can participate in helping support conservation within — and beyond — the borders of the 3,600 acres that comprise the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge.

Our first conversation will be with Suzanne Tuttle, former manager of the Nature Center. As manager for 11 years (and an additional 12 years as a staff member), Suzanne became very familiar with the most-pressing conservation issues affecting the park. Hear her insight on how we can protect this place for future generations.

This event will be held in a VIRTUAL format on Zoom.

Cost is per registration.
