2019 Prairie Stampede – Prairie Awards & Holiday Potluck

All are invited to the Prairie Potluck Holiday Celebration & Awards Dinner (free) on Wed., December 4 at 50 Waugh Dr, Houston, TX 77007
We always have fun at this annual event celebrating our prairie champions (scroll down to read about our honorees) and prairie achievements of the current year. This year HNPAT (Houston Chapter – Native Prairies Association of Texas) and Coastal Prairie Partnership (CPP) will be supplying the turkey. PLEASE REGISTER so we can have a headcount. Also please register using the above link rather than through the facebook event.
 The Houston Native Prairies Association of Texas will be honoring long-time prairie champion and Galveston Bay Area Chapter – Texas Master NaturalistJim Duron with the 2019 Prairie Volunteer Award for his tireless work!
 
CPP will award the 2019 Flo Hannah Prairie Excellence Award for career achievement to Bill Neiman of Native American Seed for his multi-decade efforts in growing prairie seeds at scale and for his advocation of prairies across Texas and the Dick Benoit Upper Texas Coast Prairie Award to Dr. Stephen Benigno of Harris County Flood Control District for his pioneering prairie research. 
 
We will also hear success stories from many other organizations and individuals in the coastal prairie community of Greater Houston and the Cajun Prairie, so get those stories ready!
 
Be ready to send a slide of your successes this year. Cassidy Johnson is also putting together a running loop of 2019 photos of prairie projects/people/activities, so send yours to her at PrairiePartner@gmail.com. Preferred format is to have the photo(s) and captions on powerpoint slide(s).
Schedule:
6:00 p.m. Doors open
6:30 p.m. Pot luck starts
7:00 p.m. Program starts
