Nature is more than someplace we visit — it’s where we live. In this talk from naturalist and journalist Amy Martin, author of Wild DFW: Explore the Amazing Nature Around Dallas-Fort Worth, discover North Texas’s rare prairies, diverse bottomland forests, limestone escarpments, wetlands, and more, as well as the river that defines us, the Trinity.
Wild DFW engagingly explores the nature of North Texas (Collin, Dallas, Denton, and Tarrant counties) from ancient history to the present with facts, philosophy, and personal insight. But Wild DFW is about far more than the landscape. The book comes alive with a community of people who are devoted to preserving and appreciating the land where they live. Many found deep healing through nature. Others found their life’s true purpose. Their stories will inspire you. Through them, you’ll discover the issues facing the urban environment and how you can help while having a great time.
