Wild Flower Walk

The Friends of Oak Cliff Parks FOCP will be hosting a wildflower trail walk at the Kiest Conservation Area this April. The meadow in the center of the 88 acre Conservation Area will be bursting with color that time of year. Well over 150 species of Texas native wildflowers were identified there a few years ago by the late North Texas Master Naturalist Jim Varnum. This is a great  opportunity for all to come out and see an amazingly colorful piece of native prairie, our new “Meadow Loop” Trail, and the new “in the works” parking lot and connector trail. You’ll be amazed at what we have right here in Oak Cliff. Date tbd: mid April weekend.
