Now, more than ever, we need natural spaces to help relieve the stress of daily living. Experience first-hand all that nature has to offer — outside and in person — at the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge. The best way to encounter nature on a regular basis is with a Friends membership. With a membership, you have unlimited, free entry to the Nature Center in addition to free or discounted educational programs the Nature Center offers weekly. However, membership is more than just benefits. A membership to the Friends allows you to financially show your commitment and support for a truly special place where you can experience all that nature has to offer.

My wife and I love hiking at the Nature Center. We are there three to four times a month. I think we have memorized every trail; we know the deer and where all the benches are.
