Description: If you have been participating in recent mapping training workshops, or would just like to learn how to map remnant prairies then join HNPAT for a day of fun searching for prairie sites in Eastern Harris County. We already have pre-selected potential prairie sites to visit. We will go out in teams of 3-4, visit sites, collect data then return to base at Deer Park Prairie to submit data. We will end the day with a dinner for participants provided by NPAT. This project will help identify potential pollinator sites, prairie remnants and areas for potential prairie seed collection and will be added to statewide databases maintained by TPWD. If you can’t do the entire day then join us by following in your own vehicle and leave as you need. We do need volunteer drivers.
