The Trinity River: Its History and Evolution
April 25 @ 6:30 pm - April 27 @ 3:00 pm
Through a two-hour lecture/discussion April 25 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm and six-hour Saturday tour (with lunch) from 9:00am to 3:00pm, local probate judge and historian Quentin McGown will lead an exploration of the history and evolution of the Trinity River and its role in the development of Fort Worth and Tarrant County. The river has become the centerpiece of North Texas flood, recreation and greenbelt preservation planning efforts. Together, we’ll take a historical perspective on how we’ve used—and occasionally abused—the “Rio de la Santisima Trinidad” and discuss what the future holds for our precious waterway. Fee of $117 includes course, tour, and delicious box lunch and helps fund future Center for Texas Studies programs. Discounts available to seniors and TCU faculty, staff, and students.
