Join us on a field trip to the historic Barnett Ranch. The Barnett family has run a cattle ranching operation on 1,200 acres in Denton County for generations. It has lush native grass pastures, Fort Worth Prairie seeps, wonderful exposed Cretaceous geology, & prairie barrens.History is plenty on this ranch as you can still see wagon ruts from where the Chisholm Trail once crossed this land.  The ranch has a conservation easement managed by Connemara Conservancy.
