The Fayette Prairie is a blackland prairie separated from the larger Blackland Prairie to the west by Post Oak Savanah.

As with other NPAT chapters, our goal is to develop a local program of education, field trips, outreach, and cooperative efforts in conservation and restoration.   

Smaller Acreage Restoration Program

The Fayette Prairie Chapter has developed SARP, a grant program designed to help our members with prairie restoration projects. The goal of this grant is to cover 50% of the upfront costs of herbicide and native grass and flowering plant seeds for restoration on projects smaller than 25 acres. We will also help landowners with equipment and chapter workdays, offer education and information resources for prairie maintenance throughout the restoration period. Find out more.
