Seed Cleaning

This month we have a special Seed Cleaning and Packing Pizza Party Sponsored by Katy Prairie Conservancy (who will provide the pizza and ice tea) and Houston Arboretum & Nature Center (who will provide the meeting facility).
Free and open to the public.  Everyone welcome, but registration required! SIGN UP HERE. Please sign up because we need a head count for the pizza.

This is a popular annual event, don’t miss it!

For those able to come at 5:00 pm (meet at visitors’ center), we will have a pre-party walk to the Arboretum’s prairie – The Meadow – from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm.  Along the way we will be passing by the planned and shortly to be installed savannah. For the savannah and other prairie areas in the master plan, the Arboretum is growing out 100,000 cone-tainers of prairie plants in conjunction with the Memorial Park Conservancy.

HNPAT and the entire prairie

community mourn the loss of Flo Hannah.
