The Big Bluestem Circle

A special group of inspiring and committed supporters who lead the way to help us save more Texas native prairie.

Big Bluestem, or Andropogon gerardii, is one of the most iconic grasses of the Texas and North American great plains. It is among the tallest, most versatile, and most resilient prairie species. It is also a strong symbol of a healthy grassland ecosystem.

In 2022 the Native Prairies Association of Texas rolled out a new Leadership Giving Program, designed for and by our most dedicated prairie enthusiasts. These visionaries agreed to donate the value of $2,000 or more annually over three consecutive years with their time, talents, and resources.
