Audubon Dallas – Conservation In Action Work Days

Posted by youngsierrans on August 25, 2008

If you’re ever in the mood to get outdoors to break a sweat doing some local hiking trail maintenance, look no further than Audubon Dallas’ (site) monthly Conservation in Action Work Days. Habitat restoration & trail maintenance at Cedar Ridge Preserve happens the 3rd 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’ll provide snacks, water, pruning shears, shovels, and work gloves. All you need to bring is sun screen and bug repellent.

At an elevation of 755 feet, Cedar Ridge Preserve is a slice of the hill country just 20 minutes outside Dallas. Cedar Ridge Preserve is a not-for-profit natural habitat of 633 acres featuring 10 miles of hiking trails, a native plant nursery, butterfly gardens, and picnic areas.
