Mineola Nature Preserve Opens To Public

A wildlife center in Mineola, which has been in the works for the past seven years, opened to the public today. The Mineola Nature Preserve is located off of County Road 2724. It's approximately 3,000 acres.

The preserve includes a three-mile, walking nature trail with several wildlife viewing stations on the way. There's also a pond where you can fish, stocked with catfish. Also there to see, nearly 200 species of birds. "There are children in the Dallas, Fort Worth area that wouldn't even know what a feral hog was and it sort of excites them to see them come across from one food plot to another and disappearing in the woods," said Developer Gordon Tiner.

The nature preserve is open on the weekends from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. It will be open seven days a week starting in June.
