Houston Chapter of the Native Prairies Association of Texas (HNPAT), I would like to thank the Garden Club of Houston and its Community Contributions Committee Chair, Lester Grundy, for generously awarding us a grant for the printing of the brochure Paradise Lost? The Coastal Prairie of Lousiana and Texas. The brochures will provide a wonderful guide for visitors to Deer Park Prairie and will greatly aid not only HNPAT and NPAT but the entire local conservation community in preserving our much endangered coastal prairie.
HNPAT would also like to thank Jaime Gonzalez of the Katy Prairie Conservancy for tracking down the designer of the brochure, Ellen Marcus, Regional Graphic Designer at the Atlanta Office of U.S. Fish and Wildlife. We also owe a huge thank you to Ellen for facilitating the printing and for adding an acknowledgement on the back cover to the Garden Club of Houston for funding the printing.
All of us at HNPAT greatly admire and appreciate the many undertakings of the Garden Club of Houston and its member Doris Heard in conserving the local ecology and promoting local native plants. Thank you, Garden Club of Houston, again for your generous grant!
