This is a terrific time of the year to photograph the Trinity River corridor. The wildflowers are out on the prairies and in the forest. The Santa Fe Trestle Trail is open at 1837 E. 8th Street and Moore Park Gateway has stunning architectural elements at the same address. The Great Trinity Forest Gateway and Horse Trails is open at 2161 Dowdy Ferry Road off of IH-20. Photos from the 2012 winning collection are currently on display at Macy's at NorthPark. The corridor stretches from Web Chapel in the north to just past the new forest gateway off of IH-20. Send us your best photo soon!2012 Winners | 2011 Winners | 2010 Winners | Archives
Over 14,000 pounds of trash and debris was pulled out of the forest areas and inlet waterways at the Elm Fork. The 200 volunteers from CVS/Caremark plus worked tirelessly to pull the massive amounts of trash out of the area. The land is an urban wilderness area and one the City hopes to someday use for a variety of recreational purposes. The current illegal dumping and trash that accumulates during high rain events is ruining the habitat for Texas native plants, trees and wildlife. David Lamb, a CVS employee, kayaked in a swamp area picking up sack after sack of discarded items. Water from the Trinity also goes through the inlet waterway system to the Bachman Water Treatment plant for public use.
