Trinity River Audubon Center

The Trinity River Audubon Center resides within the largest urban hardwood forest in the United States within a few miles of the nearby urban downtown environment. At this intersection of city and nature, the Center is sculpted by elements of the natural world – earth, water, and air. The Center was conceived as a teaching tool, promoting both a greater appreciation of surrounding ecosystems and an understanding of man’s impact on the environment. Today, visitors experience a transition to the forest and river ecosystems, and gain an understanding of this unique place that supports the coexistence of people, wildlife and vegetation. The facility distills the energy of this restored place through exhibits, classrooms, and research laboratories that celebrate the land.
