At Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center, the ecosystems of east, west and central Texas converge, making the canyon an ideal location for learning about environmental science and nature. Audubon preserves natural habitat of over 200 acres, a portion of the surrounding 3,000+ acre greenbelt near Cedar Hill State Park and Cedar Ridge Preserve, which is managed by Audubon Dallas. Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center has over 2 miles of hiking trails reaching the highest elevation in Dallas County and allowing visitors a view of Joe Pool Lake and, on a clear day, to Cowboys Stadium in Arlington and beyond. The center's Nature Play area with picnic tables, bird blind with a rain catchment system, education animals on site, resident raptors, indoor bird viewing area, nature store, special events and programs enable Dogwood Canyon to serve the community by connecting people with nature, especially thousands of school children that visit on field trips. Set at the mouth of a forested canyon, Dogwood Canyon is one of the few remaining places in Dallas County to observe native trees, grasses, wildflowers, butterflies, birds, insects, reptiles, etc. in a natural setting. The greenbelt area that includes the center is an important stopover for migrating birds and other species.
