If your idea of relaxing includes nature, you better bring your gear!
The Acton Nature Center is a regional recreational park which provides the public a glimpse of the landscape of a century ago. Its modern education center hosts free programs by Texas Master Naturalists and Master Gardeners about plants and ecosystems from a bygone era.
The 74-acre Acton Nature Center is just the starting point. With seven miles of hike/bike trails, a butterfly garden, amazing wildflowers and towering oak and juniper trees, the ANC is a geocache playground. The new education center is a hit with schools and youth groups. The all-volunteer staff hosts amazing events throughout the year, including a monthly, guided bird walk and annual star -party, reptile festival and monarch tagging event.
Acton is approximately 40 miles southwest of Fort Worth on the Brazos River in Hood County. From Hwy 377, head east on Fall Creek Hwy.
