The City of Dallas has been working with Texas Parks and Wildlife, the Lewisville Aquatic Ecosystem Research Facility and local chapters of the Texas Master Naturalists to develop the plan to preserve, manage and protect the many unique natural resources of the Great Trinity Forest. 

Located in southeast Dallas, just minutes from the central business district, the Great Trinity Forest is one of the largest urban forested areas in the United States. In addition to bottom-land hardwood forests, the Great Trinity Forest area includes wetlands, ponds, remnant prairies and meadows, and a unique natural spring.
