Double Your Impact with a $1-to-$1 Match
The Dixon Water Foundation has made this generous challenge possible so you can double the impact of your gift to fund the new North Texas Outreach & Stewardship Program! Don’t miss your opportunity to create transformational change for the Native Prairies Association of Texas in this rapidly urbanizing region.
Prairie is the natural landscape of North Texas. More than 99 percent of the prairie ecosystem experienced by early Texans has been plowed for croplands or altered through heavy grazing. An additional threat is development for cities and industry. Family lands near cities are being sold, generating an urgent need for prairie conservation and awareness in and around the Dallas-Fort Worth metro region. The tallgrass prairie is the most-endangered ecosystem in North America. It is worth saving!
During this pandemic, natural open space has become more important than ever for the well being of Texans living in urban areas. Native grasslands have proven to mitigate flooding, cool urban heat islands and improve water quality in this age of extreme weather events. Prairies are an important part of the solution for declining bird and insect populations. Saving prairies and grasslands is an investment in a more resilient climate in a time of change.
Please help us protect prairies to protect our future.
