8th Anniversary Celebration at SWNP

Saturday, November 6, 2021, 2pm

The recent history of the preserve starts in 2005, when The Trust for Public Land, partnering with the City of Arlington, purchased the land from a housing developer. The trust held the land until Arlington voters passed a bond package.  It took years of restoration and improvements before the facility opened to the public in 2013. We will mark the 8th Anniversary of the park’s grand opening with a program at the preserve on Saturday, November 6th, at 2pm.

Jim Frisinger will lead a walk to the north edge of the preserve and explain the project to restore the prairie in that area, describing the decisions we’re making on what should be encouraged and protected and what steps we are taking to help this prairie area thrive. The walk will be in-person from the parking lot, adding a Facebook Live broadcast when the group arrives at the north prairie. 

Refreshments will be served after the hikers return to the parking lot.
