Skip Barnett Ranch Field Trip (Denton County)
Registration is limited. Register here.
Join us on a field trip to the historic Barnett Ranch. The Barnett Family has run a cattle ranching operation on 1,200 acres in Denton County for generations. It has lush native grass pastures, Fort Worth Prairie seeps, wonderful exposed Cretaceous geology, & prairie barrens. History is plentiful on this ranch as you can still see the wagon ruts of the Chisholm Trail where it once crossed this land. 990 acres of the property has been placed into a conservation easement managed by the Texas Land Conservancy.
Please contact the field trip organizer, Suzanne Tuttle, with questions at email@example.com or 817-845-5656.
The ranch is on Highway 380 west of Denton. Directions will be provided via registration.

- The ranch has a good gravel roadway system. Some walking will be involved but we should be able to drive to within 0.5 mile of points of interest.
