If a tree falls in the forest and no one’s there to hear it, maybe it’s because no one knows the forest exists. It might come as a surprise to Dallas residents that the Great Trinity Forest is in their backyard. Well, maybe not your backyard. Yep, those are just weeds. Just eight miles south of downtown, the Trinity River Audubon Center, 6500 Great Trinity Forest Blvd., is the city’s hidden treasure, located in a 7,000-acre forest.Saturday, the Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture, the Trinity Trust and the Audubon Center host an outdoor event, The Mystery and Magic of the Great Trinity Forest, with early morning family yoga, tours of the forest, tree planting and a picnic lunch. Yoga starts at 9 a.m. and lunch is served at noon. Tickets for children are $15, $20 for members and $30 for non-members. Visit
