In 1999, on an exploratory hike, amateur naturalist David Hurt discovered a stand of flowering dogwoods (Cornus florida), a rare and remarkable find, as the flowering dogwood is common to the Pineywoods and post oak belts of East Texas, but is generally absent from shallow clay soils of limestone regions to the West. This was the first of many rare flora and fauna discoveries in Dogwood Canyon. Learn more about our rare, wild habitat, it's wildlife, and how you can help our conservation efforts.
