The Importance of Private Land Conservation in Texas

Amber Arseneaux, North Texas Program Director for the Texas Land Conservancy (TLC), will speak about protecting land for future generations and the use of tools such as conservation easements. TLC is a nonprofit land trust, founded by Ned Fritz in 1982. The mission of the TLC is to conserve natural areas in Texas and to protect the physical and ecological integrity of their wildlife habitat, native plant communities, and scenic landscapes for the benefit of present and future generations. TLC protects more than 146,000 acres of land in Texas.

Pre Meeting Volunteer Activity:  April 1st 8:45-noon Volunteer Workday and NTMN Outreach at Oak Cliff Nature Preserve

Join Texas Land Conservancy volunteers to improve Oak Cliff Nature Preserve. We will be doing more trail trimming – so get ready to see some of the beautiful parts of the preserve.

TLC recommends long pants, closed-toe shoes, sunscreen and insect repellent. Please bring a refillable water bottle and your favorite pair of work gloves or pruning tools (loppers or handsaws), if you have them. We will have gloves and tools to use as well! Children are welcome, if accompanied by an adult. Remember there are no bathroom facilities at the preserve, so please make a quick stop before you arrive.

The Dallas Police Department Community Engagement Unit will also be at OCNP to host the Earth Month kickoff. This event includes an opportunity for NTMN volunteers to show the forest trunk and meet with the public.
