Keep Trophy Club Wild (KTCW) was newly established in January 2014 and is a nonprofit organization, run by volunteers and funded by membership dues, individual and corporate donations, and grants.
KTCW wants to protect and preserve approximately 450 acres of undisturbed conservation area inside the Trophy Club Park (south from the main gate). Our purpose and goal is for the "education, preservation, conservation, recreation and restoration" of this pristine area.
Through our mission, we hope to promote public awareness and enthusiasm for this hidden local treasure with interactive programs, events, classes and an informative website. Our programs and events are geared toward including environmental education and research in an outdoor atmosphere; encouraging students from public, preschool, private and home schools to use the facilities; promoting and maintaining the nature character of the Trophy Club Park Conservation Area (TCPCA) while raising public awareness of TCPCA as an asset to the community and surrounding areas; and to develop and maintain productive and positive relationships with the town’s Park and Recreation (P&R) Department and other organizations.
We’re still young as an organization and have met with great support from our Trophy Club community in the events we’ve held in the past year and in the programs we’ve initiated. We’re excited about the progress we’ve made in adding key amenities to the conservation area such as an outdoor classroom, Bluebird nesting boxes, and a Blue Bonnet field, prairie, native grasses and pollinator demo area. We’re hopeful to have more of our great community involved in our growing future, together!
