Welcome to Twelve Hills Nature Center

We appreciate your support!

Explore Twelve Hills

Whether through one of our guided walks or on your own, there is plenty to discover at Twelve Hills Nature Center. Established in 2005 on reclaimed land in the heart of North Oak Cliff, volunteers have worked tirelessly to restore land back to the native Blackland Prairie, providing habitat for wildlife, educational opportunities for local schools, and a place of refuge for neighbors and nature lovers. Come out and see for yourself!
