Volunteers needed for two urban prairie restorations. We'll be doing restoration work at MD Anderson Prairie (located at the corner of Holcombe and Fannin in the Texas Medical Center) on Friday, September 15, 2017 from 9 am - 12pm. We will then help restore the Father Meyers Pocket Prairie on the campus of the University of St. Thomas - Houston on Saturday, September 16, 2017. We need about 10 volunteers to register for each event. Please visit katyprairie.org/events for more info and registration! This is an official UP (Urban Prairies) Team event.
We have a brand new calendar of prairie fun for the fall up at katyprairie.org/events. We hope to see you sometime soon! Photo by Chuck Duplant. #katyprairie

Happy #WildlifeWednesday everyone! If you've ever thought that the prairie was all just shades of green and brown, these birds will change your mind! Bright pops of color are often present in the plumage of birds of flight and can be essential to their survival. The species shown here from first to last include European starling, Indigo bunting, Northern cardinal, Painted bunting, and Sandhill crane. All photos by Greg Lavaty.
