October 14, 2017 -  Paul Mathews Prairie & Clymer Meadows!

Saturday, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

Blackland NPAT proudly joins our co-host, The Nature Conservancy, in offering a FREE DAY-OF-TOURS OF THESE BEAUTIFUL PRAIRIES!

Our Guide, Brandon Belcher, North Texas Preserves Manager for TNC, will share his deep prairie knowledge as we enjoy the beauty of the two colorful grasslands
1st STOP: Mathews Prairie, a 100-acre pristine Blackland Prairie preserve. It is densely grassed, heavily forbed, and riddled with deep gilgai impressions. (Currently under a conservation easement with TNC, NPAT seeks to additionally protect the property from rapid encroachment by purchasing it and co-managing with TNC.)
We’ll enjoy a delicious lunch in Greenville.
We’ll spend the afternoon touring Clymer Meadows.  The entire Clymer Meadows Preserve is a valuable resource for scientific research and supervised field trips, tours, hiking and bird watching, all managed and approved so as not to impair its pristine condition.
Please read over the day’s plans on: Blackland NPAT’s Calendar October 14, 2017. We highly recommend you come prepared: Wear long pants and hiking boots (don’t forget your hat and sunglasses)!  Bring a water bottle and insect repellent.
