Region: Rolling Plains
Size: 1,114 acres

History

Desiring to protect the prairie for future generations, Alfred Maddin donated Maddin Prairie Preserve to NPAT.

Grants have funded several restoration projects on the preserve.

Site Description

Maddin Prairie Preserve features remnant and restored mixed-grass prairie, mesquite savanna, and riparian areas. A tributary of Champion Creek passes through the property and features a diverse riparian area.

Sideoats Grama (Bouteloua curtipendula), Little Bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium), Blue Grama (Bouteloua gracilis), and Sand Dropseed (Sporobolus cryptandrus) are common grasses.

Maddin Prairie Preserve also provides habitat for the Texas Horned Lizard (Phrynosoma cornutum), a threatened species in Texas, and Bobwhite Quail (Colinus virginianus). A Black-tailed Prairie Dog (Cynomys ludovicianus) reintroduction is in progress.
