Simpson Prairie

Simpson Prairie is a prairie remnant of the Grand Prairie (Lampasas Cut Plains of the Cross Timbers and Prairies) on a gently sloping hillside. Little Bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium), Indiangrass (Sorghastrum nutans), and Big Bluestem (Andropogon gerardii) are dominant grasses.

Paul Mathews Prairie

The Paul Mathews Prairie is a rare example of the Blackland Prairie in Hunt County. The historic Blackland Prairie ecoregion which once covered millions of acres in Texas, reaching up into the central United States. Today, very little of this type of prairie remains. Conserving this type of imperiled habitat is at the core of NPAT’s mission.
