Looking for a fun way to get out of the house and off the screens? A change of scenery and a shock to the senses is a sure way to stimulate the mind and body. Come explore the outdoors with a hike on- or off-trail with a Dallas County Conservation Board naturalist or on your own and learn about some of the features and animals unique to this area. Warm up with a visit to the displays inside the museum. Registration is required by visiting the Virtual Nature Exploration Hub on the Dallas County Conservation Board website.
