Help NPAT launch the North Texas Outreach & Stewardship Program!

Donate at our North Texas Giving Day page. 

Prairie is the natural landscape of North Texas. Of the 20 million acres of tallgrass prairie that once existed in Texas, less than 1% remains, making it one of the most endangered ecosystems in North America. Due to rapid urbanization there is an urgent need for prairie conservation in and around the Dallas-Fort Worth metro region. Raising local awareness is an important part of saving prairies.

To this end, NPAT is raising funds to launch the North Texas Outreach and Stewardship Program. The framework for the program has been developed by volunteers and two area chapters, but its implementation is dependent on hiring a full-time coordinator to conduct outreach, oversee stewardship of area prairie lands, facilitate conservation and acquisition, and to develop partnerships with other conservation organizations and local governments.

NPAT has received an offer of funding from the Dixon Water Foundation to help launch this position.  We are looking at additional funding sources to sustain this program long term.

We need your support!
