About the Event
Join TCA and the Ray Roberts Lake State Park on Saturday, May 18, to restore wildlife habitat. We will help restore habitat by kayaking through the Trinity River Elm Fork, removing litter along the way. Ray Roberts Lake is fed by the Trinity River and provides water for people and wildlife in North Texas. The lake provides habitat for many native fish, reptile, amphibian, invertebrate, and bird species including bald eagles that winter on the lake. Kayaks will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Walking along the shoreline is also an option.
