Prairie Seekers Introduction
Prairie Seekers is a citizen scientist program training volunteers to assess & map prairies for possible conservation.
Fort Worth NPAT is offering a two-part Prairie Seekers training in September 2020. Prairie Seekers is a methodology and tool set used to quantitatively assess the condition of prairies, remnant prairies, and potential prairie lands in Texas.
Part One of the training will be provided via a Zoom presentation covering the Prairie Seekers tools, methodology and resources. The training is scheduled for the regular FW NPAT monthly Zoom meeting, 7 p.m. Monday, September 14. Click here to register for the Zoom meeting. All NPAT members and anyone registered for the field training are welcome to attend. The presentation will be recorded and available on the NPAT website.
Part Two of the training is a hands-on field session scheduled for September 26, at LBJ National Grasslands. Participants will gain experience conducting prairie assessments using the tools learned in the presentation. Participants must register for the field portion as group size is limited due to COVID-19. Up to 2 groups of 8 participants will be accepted for the field training. Each group will be led by 2 prairie experts. There is no charge for this training, but donations to NPAT are always appreciated.
