Lights Out Texas is a campaign of education, awareness, and action that focuses on turning out lights at night during the spring and fall migrations to help protect the billions of migratory birds that fly over Texas annually.

Native Prairies Association of Texas, Fort Worth Chapter: Flower Mound Prairie Tour - Flower Mound

May 20 2023 - 10:00am to 12:00pm
TBA Flower Mound , TX

We will explore this historic 12.5 acre prairie, the sole remnant on this untouched piece of the Long Prairie that sits between the two fingers of the Eastern Cross Timbers.

Nineteenth century settlers named this landmark The Prairie Mound for the profusion of wildflowers that grow here. It was gifted by Otto Consolvo in 1983 to The Flower Foundation, which owns and manages the prairie.

The Mound is a tiny prairie surrounded by development. It wasn’t able to be burned for over 20 years, but once fire was reintroduced as a management tool, many of the prairie grasses and forbs showed up in profusion. There are currently 213 plant species identified in The Flower Mound project on iNaturalist, with 167 other species (insects, mammals, birds) also listed.
