Description:  The Bush Center is offering free guided tours of the Native Texas Park every Saturday at 10:00am from October 1st to November 12th. Lead by a Texas Master Naturalist, these tours cover the one-mile network of paths and take you through the three examples of native Texas ecoregions.

This 15-acre urban park on the grounds of the Bush Center reflects the President and Mrs. Bush’s longstanding commitment to environmental conservation and restoration

The Native Texas Park, featuring a one-mile network of trails, walks visitors through native Texas environments including Blackland Prairie, Post Oak Savannah, and Cross Timbers Forest. The Blackland Prairie used to dominate the Dallas region; however today, only 1% of the prairie remains in the state of Texas. Rediscovery of the lost prairie was the inspiration for this community park.
