A new bison viewing deck is under construction at the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge

Two decks — one is 8-feet-tall and 160 sq. feet and the other 14-feet-tall and 780 sq. feet — will be accessible via ramps and will connect two existing trails at the Nature Center, 9601 Fossil Ridge Road.

“This is allowing them access to both pastures and then a place where people can really view them,” said Haily Summerford, the executive director of the Friends of the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge. “It’s so amazing to see stuff on paper come to life.”

Construction began July 2022 and the Nature Center will host its ribbon-cutting ceremony on Nov. 11, Summerford said.
