Prairie Restoration Project Information

The Natural Resources Management Program (NRMP) of the Houston Parks & Recreation Department has selected 10 acres at Clinton Park to restore to coastal prairie habitat. Funded by a National Fish & Wildlife Foundation Grant and partnering with U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the NRMP had the area seeded with native grasses in May 2016 by our friends from Wildlife Habitat Federation. Wildflower seeds will be planted in the fall of 2016 and many community planting events are scheduled to follow. NRMP interns have been spending time at the Clinton Park Community Center working with the kids to educate them on the importance of native prairie habitat. Next time you're in the area let us know what plants and animals you see in our prairie and check out our newly installed pollinator garden next to the community center!
