Championing a Trinity River that forever deepens our connection to one another and nature is the vision of the Trinity Park Conservancy. As we all struggle with the realities of the coronavirus public health crisis, our river can still connect us — even if it is in different, more virtual ways. We have become more aware of our need for accessible, open outdoor space and of the physical and mental benefits it provides. We have learned that our individual actions can have positive influences in our communities. The Conservancy is dedicating the month of April to celebrating nature and our Trinity River community.

On April 1st, we are launching #TrinityRiverConnectsUs — a campaign to keep us virtually connected to one another through the ways we can all engage with the Trinity River. Join us as we explore the connections between our communities and with our environment and take steps to make a positive impact. 

Help us show why #TrinityRiverConnectsUs by tagging @trinityparkconservancy on Instagram / Facebook or @trinityparkc on Twitter in your photos at the Trinity River. Share how you think the #TrinityRiverConnectsUs in the caption. Inspire others to explore the Trinity River and share your favorite trails, overlooks, recreation or birding spots. The Trinity is Dallas’ largest natural resource, so there is room for everyone — please spread out and follow all of the recommended guidelines from the CDC on social distancing in parks and along trails to keep everyone safe and healthy. 

Sign up for virtual volunteer opportunities or join our Facebook Trinity Park Volunteer Group. Each week, we will email and post questions, activities and resources that emphasize:

  1. Positivity: Becoming a positive actor in our communities.
  2. Awareness: Being better aware of our impacts on our communities and environment.
  3. Connectivity: Building connections to each other and the Trinity River.
  4. Responsibility: Taking our suggested actions (large or small) each week.
  5. Stewardship: Committing to long-term change and sharing your commitment with our online community.
