Like last year, the Prairie Stampede will be outside. Once again bring your own food and drinks (non-alcoholic please).

All prairie enthusiasts, conservationists, restorationists, and organizations supporting and preserving native prairies in Texas are cordially invited to this annual evening of networking, awards, and celebration of 2021 prairie accomplishments for Texas and Louisiana.

The event is hosted by the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center (entrances at 4501 Woodway Drive 77024 and 120 West Loop North 77024). There is ample lighting plus tables and chairs in the outdoor space for our evening. HANC will also provide equipment for the power point presentation of accomplishments and awards.

As usual at the Stampede, a presentation will highlight each group’s accomplishments over the past year.

We are inviting organizations with prairie related projects to be a part of the slide show highlighting their achievements for this past year.

If you are interested in being included, please use the following format for your slide submission:

1. Please send us a total of TWO PowerPoint slides for the presentation.
2. Include your organization’s name or logo at the top of each slide.
3. You may include photos or text; however, we recommend that the text be no smaller than 24 font so it will be easy to read.

 Please send your submissions to Beth Clark at clarkre1977@gmail.com as soon as possible.

The opportunity to greet old prairie friends and meet new ones will make this a fun night!  We hope to see you at the Prairie Stampede!
