CONSERVATION IN ACTION!

Third Saturday of each Month
September through May - 9:00-Noon
June, July, August - 8:00-11:00 AM

Habitat Restoration and Trail Maintenance at Cedar Ridge Preserve is on the Third Saturday of every month throughout the year, rain or shine. Volunteers remove non-native plants, restore trails, and work in the butterfly garden. Repairing trails reduces erosion trouble spots and removing non-native plants clears crowded trail edges. We provide snacks, water, pruning shears, shovels, and work gloves. All you need to bring is sun screen and bug repellent. Questions? Contact info_CRP@yahoo.com.

At an elevation of 755 feet, Cedar Ridge Preserve (formerly the Dallas Nature Center) is a slice of the hill country just 20 minutes from downtown Dallas. Cedar Ridge Preserve is a natural habitat of 600 acres featuring about 9 miles of trails, native trees, grasses and wildflowers, butterfly gardens, limited picnic areas and wild mammals, birds, insects and reptiles. CRP has been managed by Audubon Dallas since April 2003 by charter from the Dallas County Park & Open Space Program and the City of Dallas. To view the General Rules and Regulations from the Dallas County Park and Open Space Program, click here.

Please be aware that wheeled vehicles of ALL types, including bicycles, are prohibited on the trails. NOTE: CRP cannot accommodate large groups because there are not a lot of seating, tables, or other picnic equipment.

What is the best dressed hiker at Cedar Ridge Preserve
(or anywhere else) wearing?

A Cedar Ridge Preserve T-shirt, of course!

To get your T-shirts, come to our Conservation In Action
Workdays
or to Audubon Dallas Program Meetings at The Point at CC Young Retirement Center near the
northern tip of White Rock Lake.

Our shirts are only $15 (but if you'd like to slip in a little more,
every bit helps).

You will be proud of the role you play in supporting CRP
by promoting The Preserve by wearing our logo!
