Survey of Texas Prairies, Phase II
At the January 27th meeting, Pat Merkord, Executive Director of the Native Prairie Association, spoke to HNPAT members and guests about the launch of Phase II of a proposed survey of Texas prairies. This survey will be more in-depth than the original survey, conducted from 2009 – 2011. During this phase, teams will be trained on how to effectively conduct the survey, including landowner contact, plant ID and data collection; and the use of technology including Google maps and iNaturalist. Training is scheduled to commence in March and will consist of two parts. This survey will be a great opportunity for HNPAT members, as well as members of other local organizations.
