Limited Capacity seats available

This field trip around the City of Houston will focus on the efforts of local organizations to rekindle the prairie within the urban fabric. In recent years, there has been a big push by local non-profit organizations, along with academic institutions and governmental agencies, to install “pocket prairies” across the city - an even save small remnants. Our urban prairie tour will visit the famous Lawther-Deer Park Prairie (platinum-level prairie remnant), the awarding winning MD Anderson Prairie in the Texas Medical Center, grassland restorations in the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center, and a Powerline Right of Way Prairie. These sites provide recreational value to Houstonians while providing other stacked benefits such as water absorption and habitat for wildlife. Come see how Houston is integrating prairies into its urban landscape.
