Facility:Trinity River Audubon Center
Description:Audubon Adventure Homeschool Classes at Trinity River Audubon Center provide an opportunity for homeschoolers to bond with similar aged friends, explore the Great Trinity Forest and Blackland Prairie with experienced naturalist educators, and participate in important conservation projects. Each class focuses on a different topic; students will spend a portion of the class learning about the topic in the classroom and then head outside to put their learning into practice.

Classes are for homeschoolers ages 8-12 years old (parents and younger/older siblings may wish to participate in family programming available at the same time).

Visit Trinity River other days of the week too!

The children and I visited the TRAC the third Thursday in September. When you enter, you are offered a map of the various trails on the site. We explored a short distance,and used compasses (practicing orienteering).

Inside, there is a film of the Trinity, an interactive model of Dallas' flood history, numerous hands-on activities and displays, and a gift shop.

The greatest challenge for the Center is the drought in the area. At least one of the ponds was considerable dried up when we visited. However, it did give us a chance to try our hand at identifying the tracks of animals who had come for the available water.
