Due to Covid-19:

All HNPAT events have been cancelled through April. 

Deer Park Prairie will be closed to visitors until further notice.

City Nature Challenge (citynaturechallenge.org):

“…this year’s CNC is no longer a competition. Instead, we want to embrace the healing power of nature and encourage the collaborative aspect of the CNC. This will allow people to safely document biodiversity in whatever way they can…”

Stay safe and heed public health guidelines of your local government!


After much deliberation, and in line with the CDC’s guidance on keeping social distance, the HNPAT board has decided to cancel our March 25th program meeting. We hope to reschedule this speaker for later in the year. We thank you for your continuing support and hope everyone remains safe during this difficult time.
