Tandy Hills Natural Area and Stella Rowan Prairies have always been prairie, but they haven't always been protected.
How did they become protected? Someone took notice and the process was set in motion. We need people (anyone) to be our eyes. Yes, that's right, the prairie needs YOU to notice it! It doesn't matter if you don't know the difference between Johnson grass and Bluestem grass, we still need you.
The Native Prairies Association has been mapping prairies statewide and our chapter needs help with tagging the Fort Worth area. Once a prairie remnant is identified, an effort can be made to save it from development or to introduce the owner to conservation options in conjunction with development. Our area is being developed at an alarming rate and knowing what we have will give us an advocacy starting point for treasures yet to be discovered.
If you can't join us, you can still help by looking for prairies (the land may be public or private). Report locations to our website: www.fortworthnpat.wordpress.com or by email: email@example.com
You can mark the prairie on Google Earth, or send us the address or coordinates. You can also help by liking and sharing this post.
