Explore, enjoy, and learn about the wild side of Grapevine!

“Did I just hear an owl? Is that a bobcat track? Look, there’s a bat up there!”

Yes, these animals do live in Grapevine! Our city is home to American beavers, bobcats, great blue herons, evening bats, Texas spiny lizards, pipevine swallowtails and much, much more!

These animals find their homes in the wild places in our city. Have you visited them yet? We have shady woods full of cedar elms and Texas redbuds, clear, ambling streams home to cricket frogs and dragonflies, and sunny lakeshores dotted with meadow-pinks and buttonbush.

We love our wild side and we want you to love it too! We offer hands-on, outdoor, educational and stewardship programs to help our community enjoy, learn about, and care for all of our natural treasures.

Come along and GO Wild with us!
