Blackland NPAT Chapter’s 2nd Annual Texas Prairies Tour!

(Complete details on our News & Events page)
Our Northeast Texas Prairies Tour was so much fun last year, we’re doing it again!
We have plans to visit several prairies in Central Texas (NPAT will provide maps and notes on each prairie.)  We have reserved a bus and will DEPART the parking lot of the Bath House Cultural Center, Dallas, 75218 AT 7 AM!

Individuals from Central TX who register and will tour in their own vehicles, will be sent “meet-up” information so you can make your plans!

ENJOY short excursions in beautiful grasslands; most of which are not generally open to the public!
A chance to STAND IN AWE in a native prairie as it was before westward expansion.
We’ll also LEARN about native prairie restorations and management.
BECOME INSPIRED on how to keep native prairies thriving for generations to come! 

We’ll zip southward to visit a prairie near Temple (halfway between Waco and Austin). After lunch in Salado, we’ll drive further south to near Taylor (west of Round Rock). Heading back north, we’ll go to Marlin (SE of Waco), where we’ll visit a series of small Blackland Prairies. Then we’ll travel west of Waco to tour an example of a grand prairie. We’ll head north toward home and stop in West, TX for dinner. Our final leg will end where we began EARLIER that morning, Bath House Cultural Center. 

Spring 2017— has gotten off to a great start!

We value you and your support!

Your continued support enables us to reach many goals and define new ones!  NPAT could not operate without the help we receive from every single individual!  Our dedicated volunteers, donors, and advocates are the heart and soul of our mission. We hope to see you out on the prairie! 
With continued gratitude,
NPAT Board of Directors and Staff

Become a fan of Texas prairies!
NPAT is excited at the prospects available supporting land owners’ efforts, educating young and old about the values of our prairies, encouraging environmental preservation, and enjoying the abundance of native flora and fauna!

Our collective efforts remind us of what’s really important.
As an NPAT supporter, you are in ‘good company’; The Texas Land Trust Council is a collaboration of more than 30 Texas land trusts (including NPAT) supporting excellence throughout the Texas land trust community via collaboration, education and outreach. Land Trusts within each Texas region, Panhandle Plains, Prairies and Lakes, Pineywoods, Gulf Coast, South Texas Plains, Hill Country and Big Bend Country, face challenges unique to each area and strive to conserve the native lands, wildlife and waterways of Texas for future Texans!
From NPAT’s Mission: ‘We educate Texans about native prairies, plant communities, grassland birds, wildlife and sustainable land-use practices.’  Did you know? “Today’s prairies are disappearing even faster than Amazon rainforests.”
