A HUGE thank you to Ian & Barbara Kress for your generous donations to Deer Park Prairie in both money and time!
Ian & Barbara Kress, who had donated significantly toward the purchase of Deer Park Prairie, recently donated $5000 to the Native Prairies Association of Texas for Deer Park Prairie. Moreover, they have applied for that amount to be matched by Barbara’s workplace.
Furthermore, Ian has been one of Deer Park Prairie’s most active volunteers in Chinese tallow removal. He initiated the tallow removal workday this past July, when he, his wife Barbara, and Jane Reierson worked with Glenn to cut down tallow trees with chain saws and immediately treated the stumps with herbicide. Although Ian’s job takes him frequently out of the country, whenever he is in town, he comes for a day or two of Chinese tallow removal with Glenn Merkord and sometimes also with Barbara. Their last two workdays were in October.
