Join the Education Director and Volunteers from Native Prairies Association of Texas to learn about ancient prairies that are helping to make cities more resilient and healthy for both people and wildlife! We’ll explore the famous Deer Park Prairie, the largest intact URBAN prairie in the Greater Houston region. This prairie is buzzing and hopping with life and its seeds are being used to restore dozens of prairies, including city prairies, in the area. We’ll discuss the coastal prairie ecosystem, the importance of our insects and pollinators, and the benefits that prairies and native plants can provide within city limits. Remnant prairies are ancient and they help connect Texans to their iconic culture and history. We’ll even show students and schools how they can bring a pocket prairie to their school!
