Native Plants and Prairies Day shines a spotlight on the critical role played by our North Texas prairies as essential habitats for a diverse array of wildlife, including insects, birds, and mammals. This unique ecosystem, characteristic of our ecoregion in Texas, spans from the Red River to the Gulf Coast. However, development has taken its toll, with much of the Blackland Prairie disappearing. Shockingly, the World Wildlife Fund reports that less than 1% of the original Blackland Prairie vegetation remains intact.
