Native Plants and Prairies Day

Join us on May 6!

The last few days of April have certainly fulfilled the adage “April showers bring May flowers.” But as skies clear for the first week of May, we are looking forward to seeing what blooms after the storms.

Speaking of May flowers, did you know some of the fields and green spaces that surround White Rock Lake are Blackland Prairie lands? These Texas-specific prairies are not only home to beautiful native wildflowers and grasses, but they also serve as valuable habitat for insects, birds and other animals. With an estimated less than one percent of original Blackland prairie vegetation remaining today, it is now more important than ever to educate, preserve and treasure these areas that bring so much life to our urban oasis.

In celebration of Native Plants and Prairies Day on May 6, we are so excited to learn more about these special prairies and the plants and animals that call them home. Presented by North Texas Master Naturalists, Native Plant Society of Texas, Dallas Chapter and the Native Prairies Association of Texas, Blackland Prairie Chapter, join us at the Bath House Cultural Center for a day of guest speakers, tours, exhibits and fun, free activities for the whole family.

Stop by the exhibitor area and say hello! We’ll see you there.
