Discover the world’s natural beauty at Dogwood Canyon, a peaceful place where families and friends can find their connection to nature and to each other. Celebrate the diversity of life on our planet while enjoying a variety of fun and educational activities at the Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center, located in Cedar Hill on a landscape filled with rare beauty. Dogwood Canyon is part of the White Rock Escarpment, one of the most pronounced geologic features in the Metroplex.
Nowhere in North Texas can one find a greater variety of rare species than in Dogwood Canyon. Plants and animals from east, west and central Texas converge here, making the Canyon the only place in the world where one can find the Black-chinned Hummingbird of west Texas nesting in the flowering dogwood tree of east Texas.
The Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center conserves and restores natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity. Whether you're a teacher, a bird watcher, or an outdoor enthusiast, the Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center has something for you.
Audubon owns or manages over 200 acres of nearly pristine wildlife habitat in the Canyon. Since Audubon’s large property of land is the neighbor to lands owned by the state, county and university, it is part of a nearly 3,000 acre greenbelt in southwest Dallas County.
Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center is open to the public and will provide science education to 5,000 school students on an annual basis from the surrounding DFW Metroplex.
