Additional Event Details

Water is life. This is nowhere truer than on our prairies. Prairie wetlands nourish colorful plants, serve as amphibian nurseries, provide feeding grounds for shorebirds, and quench thirst for countless upland prairie species. They also help staunch floodwaters and purify drinking water. In the wake of Hurricane Harvey's damage to coastal Texas, prairies are in the spotlight for the stacked benefits they provide, including their ability to serve as living sponges. The 25th North American Prairie Conference, June 2-5, 2019 at the University of Houston - Clear Lake brings together the brightest minds in prairie conservation from across Texas, the Southeast, and the Midwest for this year's conference "Healthy Prairies, Healthy Watersheds." Experts will explore practical methods to restore, conserve, manage, study, enjoy, and educate about our valuable and vulnerable prairies, savannahs, and meadows. The conference experience is designed for a broad audience: private landowners, natural resource professionals, governmental agencies, educators, landscape architects, master naturalists, volunteers, and others looking for real-world solutions. Conference attendees will explore the rich Coastal Prairies of Greater Houston-Galveston region of southeast Texas, which have been increasingly recognized for their ability to create healthier and more resilient watersheds Registration is now open.
