New Prairies on the Block – August 14

August 14, 2023 @ 6:45 pm 8:30 pm

Join us for a double feature!

Prairie/Savannah Restoration on UHCL Campus by Rowena McDermid
We know from historic aerial photographs that much of what is now UHCL campus used to be open prairie. Rowena McDermid’s presentation will showcase the ongoing work of staff, students, and volunteers in restoring a degraded habitat in the transition space between prairie and woodland called savannah.

The Dick Benoit Prairie by Davis Clay and Lisa Hardcastle
A few years ago Davis Clay learned about a local remnant prairie in League City called the Dick Benoit Prairie. The Dick Benoit Prairie is a ±44 acre parkland preserve on SH96 in League City. It is just to the east of the entrance to the Mar Bella subdivision. It is owned by the League City Parks Department and is a set-aside as wetland retention for neighboring subdivisions. It was established to be a natural area. It is one of the best examples of natural coastal prairie in our area.
