2. Free Family-Friendly Community Hike (Oak Cliff Nature Preserve) – Sat. January 23rd

Join ExploreMore DFW and Landloper Jessy Coleman for a fun family friendly community hike!

Meet other outdoor enthusiasts, explore new trails and leave it better! (we ALWAYS carry trash bags to pick up trash on the trail on every ExploreMore hike).

Everyone will also get a fun ExploreMore sticker and other fun swag.

This event is completely FREE however, we will accept donations and all donations will go to Texas Land Conservancy and DORBA who own and maintain Oak Cliff Nature Preserve.

Please register here as we will be limiting how many people attend and we can have an idea of how many will attend.
