  • FEBRUARY 6, 2020: “Deer Park Prairie – History, Ecology, Benefits and Education” presented by Della Barbato. The Lawther-Deer Park Prairie is a 51-acre remnant of very high quality, native grassland in the heart of Houston’s industrial area surrounded by suburban homes, schools and businesses. This prairie is home to more than 400 native plant species! It also contains wildlife, pollinators, and invertebrates (insects, spiders, and crustaceans). It represents a natural legacy of the Coastal Prairie’s history and benefits.
