Lennox Woods, a 1,400 acre preserve located along SH 37 in Red River County, north of Clarksville TX, is home to several rare plant and animal species. The old growth timber and floodplains is indicative of the environment that greeted the early settlers of Texas. Four generations of the Lennox family has stood guard over the biological wonder and originally acquired the property in 1863. Containing fully mature virgin timber, one post oak was aged at 300 years old by the Texas Forest Service.
Lennox Woods - The Ancient Forest is being presented to Fort Worth by way of a multi-year project by contemporary American artist Deborah Paris. 40 works of art, as well as film documentation of the preserve, will be exhibited in multiple venues through 2014.The Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT) is joining in the exhibition, which is underwritten and sponsored by Galerie Kornye West, and has made their portion of the exhibit free to the public.
