The Trinity River: Its History and Evolution

Course Description

Through a two-hour lecture/discussion and six-hour tour (with lunch), we'll explore the history and evolution of the Trinity River and its role in the development of Fort Worth and Tarrant County. The river has become the centerpiece of North Texas flood, recreation and greenbelt preservation planning efforts. Together, we'll take a historical perspective on how we've used—and occasionally abused—the "Rio de la Santisima Trinidad" and discuss what the future holds for our precious waterway. The charter bus tour on Saturday, April 27 is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuition includes $35 supply fee.
