CPP's co-founder and prairie champion Flo Hannah has passed away. We at CPP remember Flo's dedication to her family and to the cause of conservation. Her work exemplified what all great conservationists share, a vision of a future where nature is protected and celebrated.

We are forever indebted to her for inspiring, teaching, and leading us. During her time at Houston Audubon she taught many to love native plants, to steward wild places, and to simply enjoy nature. She may be gone but her work will endure through the work of those she trained and nurtured. Her spirit will also endure wherever her beloved plants thrive and on preserves she helped to conserve such at the Lawther-Deer Park Prairie.
