Planting Prairie 2

Are you looking for a fun way to lend a hand and make a difference in your environment?

Join us as we'll help at our Armand Bayou Nature Center Friends' annual Prairie Pandemonium Event to restore one of the last remaining stands of Texas tallgrass prairie!

 

- Tall grass prairie once covered at least nine million acres along the coastal plain of south-central Texas and southwestern Louisiana. Today, more than 99% has been lost to agriculture and urbanization.

- At nine hundred acres, Armand Bayou Nature Center preserves one of the most extensive holdings of coastal tallgrass prairie in the lower Galveston Bay watershed.

- As a part of ongoing restoration work, volunteers have grown two thousand pots of locally rare native grass at the nature center for transplantation into the prairie preserve.

 

The planting event is scheduled for October 15th, 2022 with a rain date of November 5th.

 

Registration is required to participate. To register, contact Elisa O’Neal at 281-474-2551 or email elisa@abnc.org Please say you are with BCO.

- Sign-in will begin at 8 AM.
- Planting will be from 9 AM to noon.

Lunch is included, and door prizes too.

Volunteers should be 12 years of age or older, and if under 18 to be accompanied by an adult.

 

Come out, learn about and help restore the Texas Tall Grass Prairie!
