What we're about

The mission of Groundwork Dallas is to regenerate, sustain, and improve the Dallas Elm Fork Greenbelt and Great Trinity Forest by developing community-based partnerships that educate and empower people, businesses, and organizations to promote environmental stewardship. Everyone deserves a green, healthy, and resilient environment.

We accomplish this mission through weekly environmental clean-ups, conservation outreach and engagement with community members, and by developing the next generation of environmental leaders through youth educational programming.
