Description

The Bob Jones Nature Center strives to restore and preserve the eastern Cross Timbers by expanding its offerings. This is achieved through the introduction of innovate ways to “Educate, Conserve and Preserve”; as well as researching new opportunities to influence learning about the natural world.

It is our sincere hope that you will join us this year. We take pride in supporting our community through service and hands-on educational experiences for children and adults. We invite you to believe in the significance of a Nature Center experience!

Did you know? The Nature Center grounds have an interesting historical background, dating all the way back to the Civil War. The center was named after John Dolford “Bob” Jones, the son of Leaser Alvis Jones and his slave Elizabeth. Bob was a sheepherder on his father’s farm east of Roanoke, Texas. After the Civil War, Bob, his brother, and his mother were set free and purchased a 60-acre farm. Over time, Bob, his wife, and ten children expanded the farm to almost 2,000 acres in what we now call Southlake.

Individuals like you are the reason the Nature Center exists, and we welcome you to be a part of the growth and upkeep of this gem. We rely on the generosity of the DFW Metroplex for support, and without your assistance, we wouldn't be able to keep supporting our precious natural environment each year. We understand there are many worthy causes to invest your resources; and land preservation is not the most dazzling of those. We speak for all the wildlife that live here, all the Post Oak and Black Jack trees decades old, and the Monarch butterflies. Your ticket purchase ensures our long-term mission benefits the next generation of families needing a safe place to have nature adventures!
