Yantis Prairie Field Trip with Julie Mattox

One of the many benefits of joining the Native Plant Society of Texas is participating in special state and chapter events. The Lakes and Pines Chapter took a field trip on May 18 to Julie Mattox’s Yantis Prairie in Yantis, Texas. Those members participating witnessed first-hand that Julie is truly an artist working with Mother Nature’s flora and fauna. We saw how she has taken an old dairy farm and turned it into a fabulous restoration and educational project. The Yantis Prairie & Northeast Texas Prairie Community Classroom are dedicated to the stewardship of our native prairie ecosystem and the promotion of conservation-based educational opportunities for Northeast Texas. The Yantis Prairie is surrounded by a tallgrass prairie and pollinator friendly habitats that are uniquely managed by incorporating a small herd of cattle into the prairie restoration process.
