06.06.10 Twelve Hills Dedication FREE

Stone walls flanking the Twelve Hills Nature Center trailhead denote that the entrance to the 5.3-acre preserve is a “window on an Oak Cliff prairie”. The Oak Cliff residents who founded and run Twelve Hills are inviting neighbors to stop by during the noon-4 p.m. dedication and open house, and celebrate the completion of the trailhead at Mary Cliff and Kings Highway. Rosemont Elementary children, who use Twelve Hills as an outdoor classroom, will demonstrate how to make seed balls. Visitors can take nature walks and view a display on the unusual history of the urban nature preserve. Twelve Hills volunteers will be cooking up burgers and hot dogs, and serving up water and soft drinks, free for the taking. Donations to support the Twelve Hills nonprofit are welcome. Find more information about the nature center at twelvehills.org, or contact Marcie Haley at 214.941.6069 or marcieh@gmail.com.
