You are cordially invited to attend the 2019 North American Prairie Conference in Houston, TX. Early registration opens February 1.

Dates: June 2-5, 2019

Location: The 2019 North American Prairie Conference will take place at the University of Houston – Clear Lake.

The 2019 North American Prairie Conference will draw some of the brightest minds in prairie conservation, restoration, education, and communications from Texas, the Southeast, and the Midwest.

Among this highly distinguished group of prairie/grassland scientists, leaders, and advocates will be Carol Davitt (Missouri Prairie Foundation), Dr. Reed Noss (Southeast Grasslands Initiative), Dr. Chris Helzer (The Nature Conservancy in Nebraska), Dr. Kelly Kindscher (Kansas Biological Survey/University of Kansas), Dr. Dwayne Estes (Southeast Grasslands Initiative), and Dr. John Jacob (Texas A&M University).


Water is life. Nowhere is this more true than on our prairies. Prairie wetlands nourish colorful plants, serve as amphibian nurseries, provide feeding grounds for shorebirds, and quench thirst for countless upland prairies species. They also help staunch floodwaters and purify drinking water.

In the wake of Hurricane Harvey’s damage to Houston and coastal Texas, prairies (and their associated wetlands) are in the spotlight for the many benefits they provide. The 2019 North American Prairie Conference will spotlight how prairies can help to create healthy watersheds for people and wildlife.

NPAT is co-hosting this premier grassland conference. Register and find out all the details on the conference site.
