Clymer Meadow Description

Clymer Meadow, a Nature Conservancy preserve, remains one of the largest and most diverse remnants of the Blackland Prairie and one of the most scenic areas in North Central Texas. The Blackland Prairie is the Texas version of the tallgrass prairie that once stretched from near the Texas Coast to southern Manitoba. Because of the prairie's rich agricultural soils, more than 99 percent has been cultivated, making the tallgrass the most-endangered large ecosystem in North America. Clymer Meadow Preserve, ~1000 acres of tallgrass prairie near Celeste, TX, is protected by the Nature Conservancy.
