Katy Prairie Conservancy Presents Unplugged Adventure: Putting Down Roots Volunteer Prairie Planting

You can make a difference! Katy Prairie Conservancy (KPC) is looking for volunteers to help transplant native prairie plants on its 55-acre restored prairie. Participants should dress for the outdoors – wear pants, close-toed shoes, and clothing that can get muddy. It can be chilly and windy on the prairie, so a hat and layers are also recommended. Lunch, snacks, and door prizes will be provided, but feel free to bring your own food if you have dietary restrictions. KPC will also give a shout-out to any veterans who attend in honor of Veterans Day.

All ages are welcome to come out to Unplugged Adventure: Putting Down Roots at Katy Prairie Conservancy’s Indiangrass Preserve on Saturday, Nov. 11. Photo courtesy of Katy Prairie Conservancy.

Your time volunteering on the prairie will be spent planting native prairie plants that provide a number of important benefits to the Katy Prairie. These tallgrass prairie plants provide a safe habitat for local and migratory wildlife, develop deep root systems that help hold back floodwaters, and restore the native landscape for future generations to enjoy.

The Katy Prairie Conservancy, an accredited land trust, has been working since 1992 to protect these lands for people and wildlife.
