Taking care of Body and Earth, Soul and Soil

Fort Worth Prairie Park

Saving One of the Rarest Ecosystems in North America and Creating the Largest Public Prairie Park in North Texas

The Fort Worth Prairie Park is older than the birth of civilization itself, yet fresh and alive as if born this morning. With your help, we will save what’s left for all future life. 

This biodiverse land is a living remnant of 10,000 year old native Fort Worth Prairie, has never been plowed, and is of exceptional quality. It will benefit from some clearing of brush overgrowth and, in a few places, invasive species removal to return it to its highest quality native Texas prairie wildlife habitat.
