Join us for a joint USACE (US Army Corp of Engineers) / FW NPAT bioblitz to document the biodiversity in this remnant prairie.  Josh will provide an orientation on iNaturalist for those who might need it.  The goal is to spot some Trout Lillies (Erythronium) in bloom closer to the shoreline and document the prairie early bloomers. Many other short lived spring plants will be waiting for us.  Springtime in this Environmentally Sensitive Area brings prairie wildflowers, the pollinators that visit them, and the birds that prey on the insects.  

Park at gravel parking lot on west side of Old Granbury Road just south of the elbow curve where Columbus Trail meets Old Granbury Road. 32.625056, -97.421639
