A Walk to Cattail Pond
BIRDING BASICS SERIES presented by 2014-15 Master Birders
The participants in this year's North Central Texas Master Birders program will present a public series of informational programs and guided bird walks. The hour-long classroom talks will present an overview of the basics of bird watching as well as an in-depth discussion of specialized topics. Each class will be followed by a guided bird walk of about an hour in length.
If you are interested in learning more about the bountiful number of wild bird species in our part of the country, and if you want to learn how best to find and identify them, please consider registering for one (or more!) of the sessions listed in the schedule below.
The sessions are free and for adults only. Bring binoculars. In order to ensure a quality bird walk, attendance will be limited to 15 people per class date, so please sign-up early! To pre-register for a class, send an r.s.v.p to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you plan to attend more than one class, please specify each of your date selections. Thank you.

Third Saturday of each Month
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.

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.
