On Thursday, October 8, 2015, Friends of Tandy Hills Natural Area, celebrates 5 years of helping connect north Texas school children to the natural world via their award-winning outdoor education program, Kids on the Prairie.
 
More than 120 Meadowbrook Elementary School 4th graders will ride the bus to Tandy Hills for a science-based field investigation at their local prairie.
