Quebe Prairie Description

Quebe Prairie is a rare prairie remnant of the Blackland Prairie of Texas (in the Fayette Prairie part of the Blackland Prairie). Less that 1% of the tallgrass prairie remains, and very little of Texas' tallgrass prairie heritage is protected. Quebe Prairie is privately owned and unprotected. Photos by Lisa and Jason Spangler
