A new species of wildlife has made their home at Clear Creek Natural Heritage Center. Recently, wildlife cameras put up by Parks and Recreation staff out at the Clear Creek Natural Heritage Center captured footage of a family of river otters along one of the trails. While it is believed that river otters have been around the Clear Creek area before via sighting along the creek banks and water ways, this is the first documented sighting of otters in the area. The Clear Creek Natural Heritage Center has more than 2,900 acres of forest, prairie and waterways and is home to a diverse range of wildlife habitats.
Through the great work of the City of Denton, the Parks and Recreation staff and local Master Naturalists, many of the areas native plants and wildlife have been able to flourish, with some of the best wildlife to see out at Clear Creek being a vast array of birds that call the area home. Clear Creek is the host of many bird watching and sighting events each year.
The spring is a great time to visit the Clear Creek Natural Heritage Center and be able to see the great native wildlife and plants that decorate the North Texas area. To learn more about all of the trails, workshops and programs out at Clear Creek visit Clear Creek | Denton, TX (cityofdenton.com)
