North Texas Giving Day
SUPPORT NPAT and our Fort Worth chapter by helping us raise the match to launch the North Texas Outreach and Stewardship Program. North Texas prairies need your support on North Texas Giving Day (September 1 to 17).
Prairie is the natural landscape of North Texas. Of the 20 million acres of tallgrass prairie that once existed in Texas, less than 1% remains, making it one of the most endangered ecosystems in North America. Due to rapid urbanization in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro region, there is an urgent need for prairie conservation in North Texas.
To this end, NPAT is developing the North Texas Outreach and Stewardship Program. The framework for the program has been developed by volunteers and the Fort Worth and Dallas NPAT chapters, but a full time coordinator is needed to for educational outreach, to oversee stewardship of regional prairies, facilitate conservation and acquisition, and to develop partnerships with other conservation organizations and local governments.
NPAT has received an offer of funding from the Dixon Water Foundation to help launch this position. We are looking at additional funding sources to sustain this program long term.
Help us make this happen! Your support is essential.
