What is CPP?

Coastal Prairie Partnership (CPP) does not buy imperiled prairies or manage endangered species. We don't even have an office. Yet, we are a collaborative venture that is empowering the coastal prairie community.

We Need Your Help to Collect Prairie Seeds!

We are collecting seeds in the Houston-Galveston area with the hopes of producing large-scale seed farms. The seeds from these farms will help us restore  thousands of acres of prairie land - both in the city and in the countryside.

Want to get involved? Visit www.PrairieSeedCo.org - Prairie Seed Council.
