More information.

More news.

Easier navigation.

Made possible by a grant from the Amon G. Carter Foundation, the new website gives visitors plenty to explore. We have a new Events section devoted to all the exciting member and non-member events coming this fall — and in the future. Our News section gives you easier access to what you want to read. Our always-popular bison herd has received its own page as well, full of facts about its history and current makeup.

For anyone who has ever designed or redesigned a website, it is not an easy task. Thanks to the hard work of Sharon McKone, the Friends’ marketing and communications consultant, the site is even more beautiful than we could have imagined.

We wanted our site to be more representative of our mission and work, so we hope the redesign reflects the passion and commitment we all have for the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge. Enjoy all that the new site has to offer.

We want your feedback to ensure the site is working for YOU, our supporters! Send us a message on the Contact Us page, email us at info@naturecenterfriends.org, or give us a call at 817-932-7335 and leave a voicemail.
