NPAT’s Chapters hold Monthly Meet ups and Events offering opportunities to learn and exchange ideas on our roles in TEXAS PRAIRIE RESTORATION and PRESERVATION!

Listen to talks presented by dedicated and highly-qualified individuals serving your area: county and municipal agents working in water conservation, native vegetation, habitat restoration, ecological practices; people whose knowledge of practices will benefit landowners, nature conservationists, wildlife experts, and others dedicated to sharing knowledge - for the future of our great prairies!

News & Events Page provides details of NPAT activities in chronological order.

ANNUAL PRAIRIE BUS TOURS

NPAT’s Blackland Chapter in Dallas devotes a great deal of time planning annual bus tours in different areas of Texas, usually for early June. This annual event is EXTREMELY POPULAR; anxious tourists are given opportunities to walk the vast prairies. NPAT encourages all participants to come prepared and bring their cameras.  They are gracious to share photos. A Prairie Tour Photo Gallery is in the works.
