Preservation has been a critical component of our mission since the very beginning.
In early 1988, citizens joined forces with the City of Arlington to establish River Legacy Foundation, making River Legacy Parks a reality.
The land was a vital resource for recreation and education. And yet, a balance had to be established. The last thing these first conservators wanted was to shut out the bluebirds and painted buntings, the barred owls and red-bellied woodpeckers, the beavers and coyotes.
They knew that, along with structure and growth, humans require the solace and contrast of nature’s unpredictable wonders.
In 1991, River Legacy naturalists discovered the rare Devil’s Cigar during a trail walk in River Legacy Parks. This unusual fungus is only found in Texas and Japan.
