Prairie Restoration in Texas by Walter Stewart
Walter Stewart, now retired to Austin, and his wife have spent eight years restoring 20 ordinary acres to a natural prairie that is now home to 380 native species. While urbanization has drastically diminished our natural areas, Stewart proves that ‘pocket prairies,’ even if surrounded by urban development, are feasible, educational, environmentally essential, and beautiful besides.
Meetings are held at St John’s Lutheran Church, FM 465, Marion, TX and open to the public. For more information, directions or membership applications see the website: http:/www./npsot.org/wp/guadalupe/
