Wild DFW: Never See North Texas Nature the Same Way Again

45-min Powerpoint plus 5 to 10-min Q&A, followed by book signing (1-hour slot)

A photo-filled tour of the top nature spaces in North Texas from Amy Martin’s Wild DFW: Explore the Amazing Nature Around Dallas-Fort Worth (Timber Press).

Author and naturalist Amy Martin nearly died four years ago from a severely broken neck. She learned to walk again by hiking natural trails. Those hikes are an integral part of Wild DFW. Hear her inspiring story woven with rhapsodic passages from the book. Learn how a little knowledge about natural history and ecology can transform your perception of North Texas nature. 

Astounding color photos bring alive peak experiences from the 25 featured hiking adventures through hardwood bottomland forests and Eastern Cross Timbers, soaring limestone escarpments, lush wetlands, and rare remnants of Blackland and Fort Worth Prairies. Get to know a diverse community of volunteers working for nature.
