Why save this prairie?  

My reasons: it's beautiful, it's the nature of this area, it's Houston's natural history, it's rare and will disappear, if we do nothing.  Below is an article that I wrote…

Hi Jaime,

 

I enjoyed meeting you as well, and I really appreciate you introducing me to the Partnership. I'll work on getting some photos of the coastal prairie here. Finding good photos of the local prairie has been tricky! I would love to get to the conference this November to help with developing the trail guide for the National Seashore. To get moving with the project now, though, do you have any sample brochures/guides that you have picked up along your visits to various prairies and wouldn't mind sharing? Any advice regarding interpretation of coastal prairies you or friends may have to offer would be most appreciated.

Best wishes,

Chelsea

Hello Jaime,

                 Thank you for the seeds!My sister received hers also and we can't wait to bring you back a truckload or more!!We are aiming higher than the truckload,but I'm being conservative!The Junior Master Gardener's group is so excited about the prairie grasses, and so are alot of kids not in JMG. My daughter is talking about it at school to her friends and they are not aware, like everyone I have even talked to, about Prairies.I found it amazing that in BOOKS A MILLION and BARNES AND NOBLE, in Beaumont Texas, near us, there was not one book on Prairies on any shelves. I asked them about having books in stock for people to buy, but they really could careless.They said they could order us a book if they could find one in their inventory. We live about 25miles one way from the store, and most people don't want to go back to pick a book up.They want it really. What book or books would you think would be the best to inform the public about the prairies? Any ones in particular? I would love to try and get them to carry a few and stock them all the time.I think that's kinda sad, something so important,and no information...Please let me know what you would suggest. Also, I sure wish you guys ,and gals,could make it down our way with your traveling museum!!I wish you could go to Shangrila! I have been talking my head off to everyone about the prairies but to actually have a visual, and to hear you all talk, that would make such an impact!! Please think about coming here.It could be a great thing, and it would be wonderful to have the schools take the kids there to learn first hand from you all.I, of course, would be first in line!!!LOL!! I wish we had a chapter here,I think more people would be more apt to get involved with you all.I feel so helpless, and want to do so much more..You can point me in a direction if you wish! Well, PLEASE think about Orange Texas when you are planning your travels.We would love to have you!!    Jan

Thank you, Jaime. I was at your presentation to the GCMN class this past Monday. I thoroughly enjoyed your presentation and especially your obvious dedication to educating people about the Coastal Tallgrass Prairie. I'm looking forward to the field trip at the Katie Prairie.
