In Memory of a Prairie Warrior: Charlie Lundquist

Charlie Lundquist, energetic proponent of prairie restoration and member of the Houston-National Prairies Association of Texas, passed away on Saturday, May 16, 2020.  Charlie was a valued and steadfast volunteer at the Lawther-Deer Park Prairie since 2014, when the property was purchased by NPAT.  Charlie Lundquist was the brother of Katie Sallean, TMNCPC Tresurer and he was a native prairie ambassador creating his own 1.5 acre pocket prairie in Friendswood, Texas.   The Deer Park Prairie staff have recently created a project to build the Charlie Lundquist Memorial Boardwalk into the prairie which would allow people of all ages and physical abilities access to the prairie including to the wetland areas.  This project has been on the NPAT’s wish list for quite some time and was mentioned by Della Barbato when she spoke at our recent Chapter meeting in February 2020.   You can view/donate via the campaign page here:   https://texasprairie.org/charlie-lundquist/
