Hike at Barn Owl Ridge within LLELA

Published by Lisa Spangler on

We invite you to a special hike with Director of LLELA, Richard Freiheit, and UNT Ecology instructor Dr. Jaime Baxter-Slye at the Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area on June 10th starting at 8am. Richard and Jaime are excited to provide a tour of the Barn Owl Ridge, an area within LLELA not normally accessible to the public. The hike will be conducted in an approximate 30-acre native Texas Blackland Prairie reconstruction site. Over 650 taxa from Fungi to Chordata have been documented at Barn Owl Ridge within LLELA , with 196 plants identified. 

Porta potties are located at the dam outfall parking lot and the classroom area. Once we are done hiking, we will meet at air-conditioned classroom for snacks and discussion about our finds. After the hike, you are more than welcome to proceed on your own to LLELA’s public trails until closing at 7pm.

See you there!
