Dogwood Blooms Guided Hikes

By Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center (other events)

5 Dates Through Apr 06, 2019


Enjoy a Guided Hike to the Dogwood Blooms with David Hurt, owner of Wild Birds Unlimited on Lovers Lane in Dallas. Upon return to the center, enjoy a small reception with Dogwood Canyon's American Kestrel, wine and snacks. Our nature store will also be open for shopping.

This is a special guided hike to the blooming dogwoods (Cornus florida) located deep in our canyon. The dogwoods bloom only for a few weeks each year and we are offering only five guided hikes this year with a small group limit on each hike. 

Morning hikes will begin at 9:00a and the afternoon hikes will begin at 4:00p. Both times are optimal for viewing the dogwoods, avoiding the harshest daylight.

Participants will meet at the center and embark on a partially off-trail journey over hills, through a small creek and into the grove of dogwoods where participants may choose to climb a ladder for a closer look at the blooms. Upon returning to the center, enjoy a glass of wine and visit with our education bird, an American Kestrel, the smallest falcon in North America. Expect the hike to last 2-3 hours, followed by the reception back at the visitor center. Please arrive at least 10 minutes early, as hikes will depart promptly.

Please wear sturdy shoes that can get muddy and wet, as well as insect repellant. Bring sufficient water and other personal necessities.

Please note that refunds will only be provided if the event is canceled by Audubon. 

If you have questions about this event, please call the center at (469) 526-1980 or e-mail [email protected]
