People for Prairies 2023 / Sponsorship Information
Thursday, May 11th, 5:30-8:30 p.m.
Cherie Flores Pavilion at Hermann Park, Houston, TX
How can we help urban youth connect with nature?
This spring you can have a prominent place at a unique event for people and organizations who care about youth education and the heritage of conservation in Texas.
“People for Prairies,” hosted by The Native Prairies Association of Texas (NPAT), will start a broader conversation between teachers, parents, school administrators, and community leaders about how to expand positive experiences with nature for the Houston area’s urban youth. The evening will also raise important funds for NPAT’s Prairie Education Program.
Attendees will include local teachers, parents, school administrators, community leaders, NPAT members, and other local conservationists. Our supporters are active outdoors and care about protecting nature to benefit people and wildlife. They value the heritage of Texas and resilient, sustainable neighborhoods.
