The town of Trophy Club held its second annual Back to Nature event Saturday.

"Since Arbor Day, National Trails Day and the Spring Family Campout fell around the same date last year, and the theme was about celebrating the outdoors, we decided to combine all three and host a multifaceted event at 877-acre Trophy Club Park," Trophy Club spokeswoman April Reiling said.

The National Trails Day celebration included outdoor educational sessions, exploring many nature trails and a T-Rex 10K Run.

"The trails and nature preserve areas at Trophy Club Park are beautiful, and I think it’s wonderful that Back to Nature brings families and guests into our special park," Trophy Club Mayor Connie White said.

At the Trophy Garden Pavilion there were free activities such as horse rides, live birds of prey and reptile demonstrations, fly fishing seminars and kayaking information.

Families pitched tents at the Trophy Club Park for the family campout. Dinner was served that evening and campers were treated to a light breakfast the next morning. Live folk music from Yancey Stevens was the evening’s entertainment.

"Back To Nature and Family Campout really give Trophy Club families the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and wildlife right in their own backyards," Trophy Club Town Manager Mike Slye said.
