FWISD STUDENTS EXPLORE TANDY HILLS NATURAL AREA
Fort Worth, Texas - Recently more than 140 Fort Worth ISD 4th graders spent the better part of a school day exploring the Tandy Hills Natural Area, on the east side of Fort Worth. The event was sponsored by the Friends of Tandy Hills Natural Area (FOTHNA).
Tandy Hills is a 160 acre indigenous remnant of prairie located approximately five minutes from the heart of Fort Worth. The land was obtained by the City Parks Department in the 1960's and designated a natural area in 1987.
Master naturalists led students from Meadowbrook Elementary School through a series of field investigations that incorporated science, math, creative writing and art disciplines.
FOTHNA, a private sector, non-profit organization, provided the funds to help defray pay expenses association with the trip. For more information regarding the Natural Area contact Don Young at 817-731-2787 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
