Audubon Texas is the state program of National Audubon Society. Our mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth's biological diversity. Audubon Texas supports 3 education centers - Trinity River Audubon Center (Dallas), Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center (Cedar Hill), and Mitchell Lake Audubon Center (San Antonio). These education centers serve over 100,000 people each year and connect over 35,000 school children from under-served areas of our urban communities with nature. Audubon Texas has been managing coastal barrier islands in Texas since 1923, and is also committed to our disappearing grasslands and keeping ranchers on the land. Our success is based on a foundation of science and education, and our approach to conservation has achieved significant results.
Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center
Centrally located in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Dogwood Canyon is part of the White Rock Escarpment. Nowhere in North Texas can one find a greater variety of rare species than in Dogwood Canyon. Plants and animals from east, west and central Texas converge here, making the canyon the only place in the world where one can find the Black-chinned Hummingbird of west Texas nesting in the flowering dogwood tree of east Texas. Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center is admission free, open to the public, and provides science education to 7,000 school students on an annual basis from North Texas schools.
Trinity River Audubon Center
Bird watching, hiking, family programs and science education programs - these are just a few of the activities and programs we are working on this year for individuals, families, children, and students to enjoy at the Trinity River Audubon Center.
We need your help. Your support provides the necessary income to keep the Centers operating, and to provide conservation and education programs. Thank you for your gift.
