What is Wildcat Bluff?!

Wildcat Bluff is 657 acres of wide-open Texas Panhandle.  Formerly a section of the historic Frying Pan Ranch, we have 5 miles of trails, 5 acres of paved and accessible paths, a dig pit for learning about Panhandle prehistory, our Gilvin Science Education Building, a section of the historic Gregg-Marcy Santa Fe Trail and so much more.

Our Goals

  • To educate and inspire students, teachers, and the public about the natural world through direct discovery and hands-on learning
  • To promote a sense of personal responsibility for the environment
  • To manage Wildcat Bluff’s acreage as a living museum and outdoor classroom through ecologically appropriate land management

Is the $30 cost pro-rated to align with the renewal of my annual DHDC membership?

As of right now, we do not have the option to pro-rate the add-on pricing. Once you pay for your add-on it will then renew again when your membership renews. Every dollar of your membership and add-on goes to increase science and nature education in the Panhandle, and we appreciate your support.

Does the add-on include special programs such as Toddler Tracks, Sunset and Songwriters, and Guided Hikes?

Yes! Your WBNC add-on covers any activities at The Bluff unless otherwise noted (special event pricing).
