Plantando para nuestra pradera / Planting for our prairie

Event Description:

Coastal Tallgrass prairie is one of the most endangered ecosystems in North America. Only 1% of wild tallgrass prairie remains and we only have 1% at ABNC. The natural systems which support this native habitat have mostly vanished and they are now people-dependent. This means that humans must actively work to preserve and protect them. When we do, all benefit - plant, animal, and human communities alike.

  • 8:30 AM Make Seed Balls (1.5 hours): Participants join Jim Duran at the Greenhouse to make seed balls and then visit the prairie to explore prairie ecology and conservation. Mini-Hike (20mins) to Prairie Loop back to greenhouse
  • 10:30 AM Potting for the Prairie (1.5 hours): Pot historic prairie plants with Jim Duran. These plants that will eventually live in our native prairie, and learn about conservation efforts carried out through-out the year at Armand Bayou Nature Center.

Spanish and English speaking volunteers will be on-site to help guide the group.
