Fall is Prairie Season!  In October & early November, Prairie Month, sponsored by the Coastal Prairie Partnership (CPP) and the Houston Chapter of the Native Prairies Association of Texas (HNPAT) combines already existing prairie events and adds new ones to highlight a dozen fun and informative events in the Greater Houston region, celebrating and restoring our greater Houston prairie heritage.
