The Prairie Demo Garden is located in Seabourne Creek Park near the Prairie Restoration project. The purpose of the Prairie Demo Garden is to show visitors how prairie and native plants can be used in a garden and also to identify prairie plants. Click here to see a map of the park.
Several of the plots in the garden are “Natural Prairies” and show what a native prairie might look like. Other beds in the garden illustrate pollinator plants, a backyard prairie garden, a gulf muhly plot, a butterfly garden, a bee garden and a hummingbird garden. The garden is always a “work in progress” and is maintained by the Coastal Prairie Chapter of the Texas Master Naturalists.
