Guided Nature Walk
Saturday, April 1, 10 a.m.-noon

Animal tracks, deer trails, singing birds, trees with personality – who knows what you will find on the monthly nature walk. This family-friendly hike will last about two hours. All ages are welcome. Free with $5/vehicle entry to LLELA. Registration is not required. This month the guided nature walk will meet at the Blackjack Trail.

LLELA was created in the early 1990's when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers founded a consortium to manage nearly 2,000 acres below Lewisville Dam. Today the LLELA consortium includes the Corps, the University of North Texas, the City of Lewisville, and Lewisville Independent School District. Its mission is to preserve and restore native ecosystems and to provide and promote environmental education and scientific research.
