Meet with DDRC VP, Alfred Arriaga, for a DDRC Urban Paddle at the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge located at 9601 Fossil Ridge Rd, Fort Worth, TX 76135. This a beautiful park and nature center located on Lake Worth. There is a $5 entry fee to the nature center. There is only one floating boat dock in the nature preserve it is called the Big River boat dock. Plan on arriving a little before 10am on December 4th at the boat dock / parking lot.

We will paddle northwest toward Eagle Mountain Lake Dam. Then back to the put-in and have lunch at the picnic tables near the boat dock.

This is basically still water with an abundance of wildlife, including a few alligators.  Almost any type of canoe or kayak will do as there aren’t any hazards.

Please bring a picnic lunch if you wish to join everyone for lunch, plenty of drinking water, your camera and your PFD.
