Pat Merkord initiated NPAT’s first Prairie Bird-a-thon. She took pledges toward the total number of birds counted. From May 28 to June 5, Pat traveled around the state to six of our conservation properties and conducted breeding bird surveys. Thanks to everyone who pledged!
Maddin Prairie Preserve is our largest and westernmost prairie. I have been going out there every six weeks or so for several years, as a volunteer, and lately as staff. No matter when I go, there is always work to do and nature to study. This year is no different. ~Kirsti Harms
On May 4, 2019 I was happy to attend a prairie walk and plant adventure at Burleson Prairie, a 100 plus acre tallgrass prairie restoration plus a remnant in the Blackland Prairie. This site is very special as the restoration has been over 30 years in the making.
