Earth Day has a double significance for Friends of Tandy HIlls. On April 22, 1960, exactly 10 years before the founding of Earth Day, the Fort Worth City Council and Mayor Tom McCann agreed to purchase the land now known as Tandy Hills Natural Area.
With more than 600 plant species, sweeping prairie views on 160 hill-studded acres and located five minutes from downtown Fort Worth, the purchase price of $138,320 was a steal. As spring wildflowers reach their highest potential, Earth Day is a perfect day to celebrate the 58th birthday of Tandy HIlls.
