Audubon+Dallas+Dogwood+Exxon=”Green”

November 19, 2010

The Trinity River Audubon Center sits on land owned by the City of Dallas. The Audubon Society runs it. This property has also been leased to XTO/EXXON for seismic testing.

Dogwood Canyon on Fm 1382 in Cedar Hill is also run by the Audubon Society. The land is also a potential site for XTO/EXXON

What do you think? Now you know. It’s your move.

    I’m so sad to hear that the TRAC has been leased for potential drilling. I’ve taken my two young children there many times. It’s a nature oasis just outside a big urban city. I’ve always thought that it was a great place to get away from the city, walk some trails, listen and watch birds, and hunt for interesting bugs and view wildlife. Just reconnect with nature. How sad that it could all be ruined and turned into an industrial site.

    Has ANYONE not sold out? Is nothing sacred? So disappointing and not surprising!

    It’s the “arrogance” of the industry, isn’t it? And the strategy. Just like the common practice that has occurred all across the Barnett Shale ~ leasing churches and then giving them large bonuses ($50,000 or more) for the “use” of their property for either drilling or pipelines. Perfect way to buy silence. No different here…gas operators contribute large sums to “nature centers” like the Trinity Audubon Nature Center and then eventually have an easy pathway to drill, baby, drill. Silence is certainly golden.
