Texas City Prairie Preserve is a 2,300-acre expanse of coastal prairie and marshland just south of Houston. Established in 1995, the preserve provides vital habitat for more than 280 different bird species. Its coastal grasslands also act as natural buffers during storms and hurricanes, absorbing and dispersing water from storm surges and floods, making Texas City Prairie a critical component of the Conservancy’s ongoing effort to restore and protect the Gulf Coast.
Volunteer opportunities at TNC’s WORK DAYS: removing invasive species and harvesting native seeds to planting marsh grasses and tending the butterfly garden. 
Volunteers should wear jeans, closed-toe shoes, a long-sleeved shirt and hat.
Please bring a refillable water bottle and work gloves (if you have them).
TNC will provide tools, gloves, sunscreen, water and snacks.
