Prairie Restoration Project Information

The NRMP has selected 7 acres at Hobart Taylor 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. Our fall planting events will consist of installation of native grasses and forbs grown in the HPARD greenhouse by our wonderful volunteers! These plants have a head start on those coming up from seed and will help the prairies establish faster and hopefully impede the growth of non-native species.
