Natural Resources

Conservation and management of natural resources on Lewisville and Ray Roberts Lakes is a primary responsibility of the Trinity Regional Project.  Our goal is to manage resources so that they may continue to be enjoyed by all.  Even though both lakes are right in the middle of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, the project area still contains a wealth of wildlife and open spaces.

Please remember that these lands are managed for the wildlife, plants and soil, so when you visit, please be respectful of the land. More information on enjoying our natural resources with a light touch can be found at Leave No Trace and TreadLightly!
