Mount Vernon, Texas
Join this NPAT field trip to visit our newest addition to our land portfolio, the beautiful 922-acre Daphne Prairie in Northeast Texas near Mount Vernon. It happens on January 28-29, 2017.
View this large and very rare tract of Alfisol Prairie with grassland sparrows and other winter birds protected on this property. You do not have to be experienced in birding or wildlife surveying and all can participate by joining the experts as we explore this property and document its species.
Please contact Pat Merkord for information and directions to the property. There will be carpools from the Dallas area and the Houston area if you would like a ride or you may come on your own. firstname.lastname@example.org or call 936-827-7973.
Prep yourself by contacting Timothy Stephen Dalbey for a CD of his report from last year. See his contact info in Visitor Posts in the right column (on computers) on our Facebook page.
Here’s our post from last summer on the field trip. Includes a 360-degree video.
