More than 75% of flowering plants, including many on the prairie, rely on pollinators like this one to survive. We are thankful for all of our birds, bees, and butterflies this #PollinatorWeek! Photo by Elisa Donovan.
Happy #PollinatorWeek! This week we are celebrating the birds, bees, and butterflies that make the prairie possible. Visit http://katyprairie.org/nine-natives to learn more about how you can plant native plants to support pollinators. Photo by Chuck Duplant.
Did you know that Katy Prairie Conservancy annually receives EarthShare donations totaling nearly the cost of four acres of coastal prairie? Workplace giving makes an enormous impact and we are so grateful for these gifts and others. Learn more at http://earthshare-texas.org/
Today, our President and CEO Mary Anne Piacentini was awarded the Terry Hershey Bayou Stewardship Award. This is given to an individual who has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to celebrating, protecting, and restoring the natural richness of all our bayous and streams. Congratulations Mary Anne!
Yesterday we broke ground on a new wetland project that will become important habitat for migratory waterfowl and other wildlife, as well as to help hold and slow floodwaters. A huge thank you to Ducks Unlimited and the Newfield Foundation. We couldn't do it without you!
