Location: Falls County near Marlin
Region: Blackland Prairie
Size: 17 acres

The Wieting family conserved the family hay meadow for several generations, and Nelson and Emiline Wieting protected their prairie permanently for future generation via a conservation easement with NPAT.
Nelson L. Wieting 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), Indiangrass (Sorghastrum nutans), and Big Bluestem (Andropogon gerardii) are dominant grasses.
Flora of Nelson L. Wieting Prairie coming soon.
We welcome the creation and improvement of lists by volunteers!
