Fort Worth NPAT is offering a two-part Prairie Seekers training in May 2021. Prairie Seekers is a methodology and tool set used to quantitatively assess the condition of remnant and recoverable prairies for potential conservation in Texas.
Part One of the training will be provided via a Zoom presentation covering the Prairie Seekers tools, methodology and resources. The 30-minute training is scheduled for Wednesday, May 19, 2021 at 7:00pm. Register for the Zoom training at this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZElfuCvrTgsH9ciIeUv9SdqONCTpE6ZdCCN

Part Two of the training is a hands-on field session scheduled for May 22, 2021 at two private properties in Cooke and Grayson Counties. 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.
