Mission Statement

Purpose:

To promote the conservation and restoration of Tandy Hills Natural Area as a rare remaining example of native prairie that was indigenous to most of the Fort Worth area.

To facilitate use of THNA as an education and recreation resource for experiencing and understanding the natural environment of predevelopment Fort Worth.

To increase awareness of the importance of protecting and preserving natural areas through the annual Fort Worth Prairie Fest and other activities.

Description

Facts:

Tandy Hills Natural Area is a 160 acre indigenous remnant of Fort Worth Prairie located in the heart of Fort Worth, Texas. The land was obtained by the City of Fort Worth Parks Department in the 1960s and designated a a " natural area" in 1987. Since 1990, the park has been managed by the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge.

Noted for its unusually complete collection of prairie flora, THNA contains more than 500 native species. The show of spring wildflowers is unsurpassed in the Metroplex. The land is a living demonstration of how most of Fort Worth and the Great Plains appeared in predevelopment times.

THNA is adjacent to I-30 and less than 5 minutes from downtown Fort Worth, Texas.

The fact that it has never been developed and survived into the 21st century in relatively pristine condition is extremely remarkable.
