Prairie Facts

Mission

The Native Prairies Association of Texas (NPAT) is a non-profit land trust dedicated to the conservation, restoration, and appreciation of native prairies, savannas, and other grasslands in Texas. We are saving a Lone Star legacy.

We protect native prairies, grasslands and inter-related habitats through acquisition, partnerships, and conservation easements for future generations.

We restore
native prairie on our own lands, and promote restoration of grassland habitats on other private and public lands in Texas. We assist landowners as well as those interested in sustainable land-use practices by sharing informational resources and advice on restoration. 

We educate Texans about native prairies, plant communities, grassland birds, wildlife and sustainable land-use practices. We support the important role of grassland habitats in climate stabilization and in water-quality resources and conservation. We promote awareness of the natural and cultural heritage of prairies in Texas. NPAT provides opportunities to learn more about our prairies through workshops, presentations, field trips and volunteer opportunities.
