Mission Statement

To provide educational and recreational opportunities to experience our natural environment, to facilitate the enjoyment and understanding of our natural resources, to promote environmental awareness and foster responsible stewardship.

Description

The Elm Fork Nature Preserve was purchased as a woodright in 1861 by the Bramblitt Family. The land was never clear-cut and in 1986 the 40 acres were given to the city of Carrollton as a self-contained ecosystem, virtually undisturbed. The preserve offers an Interpretive Center with a nature education library, which is open for scheduled classes and hikes. Trails are open for hikes 365 days a year from dawn to dusk. A pond, environmental education classes and more are offered at the facility.
