Blackland Prairie Chapter

Welcome to the Blackland Prairie Chapter of the Native Prairies Association of Texas! We’re glad you’re here. We’d love to see you at one of our events — check our calendar for the latest info.

This chapter of the Native Prairies Association of Texas represents 13 North Central Texas counties: Dallas, Collin, Ellis, Fannin, Grayson, Henderson, Hunt, Kaufman, Lamar, Navarro, Rains, Rockwall, and Van Zandt. (see map).

The Blackland chapter formed in July 2014. Many of its members were galvanized by the discovery of original blackland prairie parcels at White Rock Lake in Dallas. The chapter has since been a leading voice to identify, preserve, and promote prairies in Dallas County and beyond. Read more about the Blackland Prairie.
