SWNP 6th Anniversary Event will feature the awarding of the historic tree designation for the Caddo Oak, a 200 plus year-old post oak (Quercus stellata). The designation will be presented by the Texas Historic Tree Coalition. The post oak was nominated by the Friends of Southwest Nature Preserve.
The ceremony will be at the Caddo Oak tree, a .25 mile walk from the parking lot, so please allow about half an hour to reach the site. A shuttle will be available from the SWNP parking lot to the north gate, providing closer access to the ceremony site for those who want a shorter walk.
As always, the event is free and open to the public.
The speaker for our November meeting will be James Everett. James is the President of the North Texas Archeological Society, the President-Elect of the Texas Archeological Society, and an Archeological Steward for the Texas Historical Commission. He will discuss “The Native American Cultures of Arlington”. His presentation will address the question “What Indians lived here?” and will provide answers from history and prehistory.
Parking is available in the front of the building, accessed from Ron McAndrew Drive
The program is free and open to the public.
