I am a native of Fort Worth and discovered Tandy Hills as a teenager in the late 60's. With my wife Debora Young I founded Friends of Tandy Hills Natural Area (FOTHNA) in 2004 and Prairie Fest in 2006 as a way to increase public awareness of the park which was threatened with fracking at the time. Our Kids on the Prairie program began sponsoring field trips at Tandy Hills for FWISD students in 2011. In 2016 FOTHNA hosted the Tandy Hills BioBlitz. I enjoy writing the monthly FOTHNA newsletter, Prairie Notes, and hiking the hills with Debora and Olive the Prairie Dog. Debora and I work together in the art glass business I founded in 1973.
