Saturday, April 22, 10:30 – 11:30 AM

On Earth Day this year, April 22nd at 10:30am, Dallas-based conceptual artist Cynthia Mulcahy will lead a nature and history walk along the Santa Fe Trestle Trail near Moore Park, where Oak Cliff meets South Dallas and where the magnificent Great Trinity Forest begins.

“A Field Guide to Wild Fauna of Dallas, Texas,” Mulcahy’s public art project in the form of a free publication that was available in 2019 at all 28 branches of the Dallas Public Library, will be also be available for free to all nature walk participants. The guide, originally funded by the City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture, explores the rich biodiversity of wildlife in the Trinity/Arkikosa River environs and is heavy on the history of place. Meet up at the Santa Fe Trestle Trailhead near the Moore Park, one of Dallas’ most historic Black parks, in the parking lot near the pavilion and amphitheater and located across from the 8th & Corinth DART Station in east Oak Cliff.

The walk will be accessible to all with paved concrete walkways that meander along the floodway wetlands, creeks and forest, which are all home to owls, resident and migratory wading birds and other spectacular native wildlife.
