Drews Prairie is a tallgrass prairie remnant of the Blackland Prairie. Texas’ Blackland Prairie is part of the endangered tallgrass prairies of North America, of which less than 1% remains due to conversion to agriculture and development.
Little Bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium), Big Bluestem (Andropogon gerardii), and Indiangrass (Sorghastrum nutans) are dominant grasses.
