Enthusiasts with a passion

The Dallas Nature Channel is an organization dedicated to sharing amazing and easily-overlooked wildlife encounters and stories that play out every day around the Dallas area.

There was no need to go on an expedition to distant countries. Why not travel at home? It didn’t matter how far one journeyed, but how much alive you are. Be an explorer of your own streams and forests..”

– Thoreau
