Bundle Up (Or Maybe Not) And Learn to Camp

Texas weather can be fickle, but warm or cool, it is always nice to be outdoors. Dress for the weather, and spend some time outdoors! The Bob Jones Nature Center and Preserve invites you to learn more about camping in the state of Texas, so you will be ready when the wildflowers bloom, and the days warm up. The preserve has been managed by The City of Southlake since early in 2019, and provides a beautiful and wooded retreat for those in the Southlake, TX community and surrounding areas.
