Field trip to RARE East Texas Prairie, Sunday, September 22, led by NPAT Executive Director, .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

The prairie is near Lake Livingston: The easement is 800+ acres with rare Catahoula barrens and long leaf pine savannah. Over 2000 acres is now in easements (Some TNC).  TPWD botanist Jason Singhurst & others have identified 640 plant taxa on these 2000 acres, of which more than 800 acres is an easement with NPAT.

Plans are to meet at Memorial Park Jogging Trail Parking Lot at 8:00 am.  Carpool to meet others at the Krogers at the second (coming from Houston) Hwy 336 exit in Conroe.  Then caravan to the Russell property.  Leave some cars and take sturdy vehicles to the prairie itself.  Parking is limited, so we need to carpool.

Bring a lunch and drinks.  Dress appropriately for prairies: closed toe shoes or boots, long pants, hat.  You might need sunscreen and insect spray (OFF, etc.)

Register early, participants limited to how many vehicles we can find to drive on the dirt roads to the site (if raining we will have to walk in or cancel). If you have a truck or a sturdy vehicle that can handle dirt roads and are willing to drive, please let me know by replying to this email, after you register.
