Location: Mitchell County near Colorado City, TX
Region: Rolling Plains
Size: 1,114 acres
Ownership: Owned by NPAT. Donated by Alfred Maddin.
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.
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.
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.
