LET'S BUILD SOMETHING SPECIAL!
This year's State of the Prairie Conference was fantastic! We worked hard to assemble a first-rate set of both national and statewide experts who will gave informative and inspiring presentations and field experiences. The 2011 conference focused on building prairies for wildlife, ecotourism, waterfowl, cattle production, education, and even for urban and suburban enrichment.

We were especially fortunate to have experts from all three areas of the coastal prairie region including the Cajun Prairie of Louisiana, the upper Texas coast, and the mid and lower Texas coast.
