Good morning everyone, new member here.

I was wondering if there are any Nature Conservancy members on this board.

I am interested in exploring the Marfa Grasslands and Davis Mountain Preserve and I am looking for any inside information.

i'm not a NC member, but I found this today in the Alpine Avalanche...

Davis Mountains Preserve open

FORT DAVIS — The 32,000-acre Davis Mountains Preserve will open to the public from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. May 16 for self-guided hiking, picnics and birding.

The preserve encompasses the heart of a functioning landscape with a variety of animals and plants — including some found nowhere else on Earth. Various birds of prey, 10 species of hummingbirds and other avian gems — including the painted redstart and Grace’s warbler — migrate through the Davis Mountains. The preserve’s 2.5-mile Madera Canyon Trail provides a variety of terrain for hikers and spectacular views of Mount Livermore, the highest peak in the Davis Mountains, as well as Pine Peak, Sawtooth Mountain and Chico Canyon.

The Nature Conservancy maintains more than 34 preserves and projects throughout the state, many of which are open to the public on select dates. The conservancy also works with state and federal partners to create and expand lands for public recreational use.

For directions and information visit or contact Jason Wrinkle at 915-426-2390 or Admission is free.
