Prairie Facts

Clymer Meadows - Webster

Location: Hunt County
Region: Blackland Prairie Ecoregion; S. segment of Cross Timbers & S. Tallgrass Prairie Ecoregions.
Size: 51.36 Acres
Ownership: Owned by The Nature Conservancy. Conservation easement held by NPAT.

NPAT is privileged to hold two conservation easements within the 1100-acre Clymer Meadows Preserve:
the Webster Tract and the Wylie Tract. 

Both are part of a larger conservation area located north of Greenville, TX owned by The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and other private owners.  The Clymer Meadows Preserve contains some of the largest and most diverse Blackland Prairie remnants in the state.  It is one of the largest and most diverse remnants of original Texas Blackland Prairie, one of the most critically endangered landscapes in Texas and the U.S.  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.

Both NPAT easement properties have been restored by The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and protect a portion of Arnold Creek watershed contributing to water quality of the East Fork of the Trinity River and the Upper Trinity River Basin.  The property supports water absorption as it increases filtration in the water supplies of Dallas, Houston and communities in-between. 

Site Description:  WEBSTER, A DUAL-HABITAT

This 51+ acre WEBSTER Tract supports a dual-habitat:  a native prairie habitat and a wetland habitat (replicating wet prairie sites once associated with blackland prairies).  The TNC worked for several years and completed their restoration of the wetlands associated with an unnamed intermittent creek.  The flow of water from the creek has been managed and the water level maintained when there is sufficient amount of rain, diverting the flow of the creek.
