Location: Falls County
Region: Blackland Prairie

The Mezynski Prairie is a Blackland ecological site in the Blackland Prairies region of Texas that is being restored from crop land to high quality Blackland Prairie habitat containing the Little Bluesteam-Indiangrass- Big Bluestem series using seed hay from nearby sites. The restored prairie has substantial aesthetic, scientific, and educational character and value as a natural ecological resource in its present states as a natural area which could be subject to development or exploitation. Maintained in the current restored state, the tract will become an excellent model of the natural fertility, organic matter content, and tilth of native prairie soil which prompted early settlers in the area to recognize the potential as high producing cropland
No forestry lands on tract.
Natural Habitat: Maintaining this tract in native prairie provides food and cover for many species of wildlife including but not limited to whitetail deer, small mammals, bobwhite quail, songbirds, and raptors; provides suitable host plants for pollinators and many insects that provide food for grassland birds.
Public access/recreation: access for field trips will be allowed for NPAT members and other interested persons who at least a week beforehand.
