One of the ultimate favorite four-letter words in these parts is “free.” It means that something of value is available for the getting without gouging your bankroll.
That’s why the Trinity River Audubon Center’s news is such a home run for any and everybody in North Texas.
Organizers decided to put in place a pilot free admission program for the first six months of 2023. It was such a hit that they’ve extended it for the rest of the year.
One of the area’s most magnificent natural habitats will be available for walking/hiking/strolling and observing flora and fauna flourishing.
What a relief for locals who are running out of sights for out-of-town friends and families to see. Or, what about long-in-the-tooth residents who just want to escape the concrete-and-glass urban world?
But there is a caveat. You just can’t show up unannounced. You’ll need to register here. The reason is to “manage the flow of cars and number of people onsite at regular intervals to ensure the safety of all visitors.”
And don’t forget to slather up with sunscreen and wear sunglasses.
