What We Do

The Native Prairies Association of Texas (NPAT) is a non-profit land trust dedicated to the conservation, restoration, and appreciation of native prairies, savannas, and other grasslands in Texas. We've been saving our Texas heritage since 1986.


We protect native prairies, grasslands and inter-related habitats through acquisition, partnerships, and conservation easements for future generations.


We restore native prairie on our own lands, and promote restoration of grassland habitats on other private and public lands in Texas. We assist landowners as well as those interested in sustainable land-use practices by sharing informational resources and advice on restoration.


We provide opportunities to learn more about our prairies through workshops, presentations, field trips and volunteer opportunities.

Your gift will preserve and bring back one of the rarest landscapes in Texas and on earth.
