If you would like to explore our fabulous preserve of the Rolling Plains ecoregion consider joining NPAT on a field trip to Maddin Prairie Preserve near Colorado City Texas on January 21 and 22. It is possible to carpool from Houston, Fort Worth and Austin or you can come on your own. We will be doing surveys of the property including our winter bird point count, survey of prairie dogs and a general wildlife survey. There will be other maintenance activities that will require volunteer help as well such as checking the fence line and water pipes. There are always surprises waiting for visitors such as the burrowing owls living in the prairie dog burrows last January or the porcupine in a tree by Champion Creek that flows through the property on its way to the Colorado river. To join this field trip contact kirsti_harms@texasprairie.org or pat_merkord@texasprarie.org or call Pat at 936-827-7973.
