We believe every day should be Earth Day. So, we're helping you learn about earth-friendly practices year-round at EDMo, our signature monthly gathering at some of the coolest venues and watering holes in Dallas. Then, once a quarter, we partner with TEDxSMU to bring you a fantastic sustainable film series. And now, we're offering you an opportunity to see North Texas' great outdoors in a whole new way with our Expeditions series.
Earth Day Texas Expeditions (EDTx EXP) is the latest initiative from the event masterminds at Earth Day Texas. Designed to help North Texans discover natural wonders close to home, EDTx EXP consists of half and full day trips to the most beautiful and important outdoor destinations in the region. Trips will be led by experts who will teach about the wildlife, history and environmental significance of each place. Groups will be kept small to guarantee an immersive educational and outdoor experience.
The first EDTx EXP will take intrepid explorers to John Bunker Sands Wetland Center, a unique wetland system only 25 miles southeast of downtown Dallas. Possible future destinations include Caddo Lake, Fossil Rim Wildlife Center, Trinity River Audubon Center and the Great Trinity Forest.

John Bunker Sands Wetland Center
Stretching across 2,100 acres on the banks of the Trinity River’s East Fork, these seasonal wetlands provide an easy escape from urban life and a glimpse into the inner workings of a crucial ecological resource. Originally conceived as a ranchland restoration project, this area forms one of the largest constructed wetlands in the United States. The Center is home to a pair of nesting bald eagles, provides temporary shelter for over 250 different bird species and forms part of the North Texas Municipal Water District’s natural solution to water treatment and recycling.
The John Bunker Sands Wetland Center (JBSWC) provides public education and research opportunities in the areas of water quality and supply, wildlife management and wetland systems. Whether you are discovering JBSWC for the first time or returning to a favorite getaway, join us on October 15 to see the Trinity River Basin in a whole new way.
