When:Tuesday, April 5, 2016
What Time: 10am - 3pm
Where: Trinity River Audubon Center
For the second year, Tourism Cares will bring WTTC delegates together to give back to our host city the day before Global Summit begins to show the industry’s support of conservation and preservation.
Located just outside of downtown Dallas, the Trinity River Audubon Center invites visitors of all ages to explore miles of trails; learn about local birds and wildlife at its Children's Discovery Garden; and participate in a wide range of special events and programs. This model of green construction and operation is a vital refuge and resource for Dallas residents and tourists alike.
Trinity River Audubon Center has 5 miles of established trails and many acres of wetland ponds and grasslands. Volunteers will help these diverse ecosystems by clearing and expanding existing trails, removing invasive species, restoring native prairies and wetland habitats and planting native grasses and trees.
Registered Summit delegates who would like to volunteer can access the sign up link to the Tourism Cares official registration page through the Summit registration process accessible at the Manage my Registration page.
There is no fee to volunteer, but donations are always very much appreciated and help Tourism Cares and our partners to operate these programs – ensuring enough tools and materials are available to complete the work projects laid out for us in the most efficient and effective way possible.
