MISSION OF THE COASTAL PRAIRIE PARTNERSHIP
The mission of the Coastal Prairie Partnership is to
promote the conservation and restoration of coastal prairie ecosystems.

HOW WE WORK AND WHAT WE DO

Coastal Prairie Partnership (CPP) is a private, nonprofit collaboration of governmental agencies, non-governmental institutions, private individuals, and landowners working to achieve common conservation and education goals. Our ultimate goal is to help foster a more connected and empowered prairie community in coastal Texas and southwest Louisiana.

CPP plays five important collaborative roles in the prairie community.

  • Convener – CPP hosts meetings throughout the year to discuss pressing issues in prairie conservation and restoration and how the prairie community can be better served by collaborative action.
  • Adviser – Governmental entities, nonprofits, landscape architects, and private individuals routinely call upon CPP to advise on ongoing or new prairie conservation and restoration initiatives.
  • Teacher – CPP offers empowering classes, workshops, and field trips each year. We also help to interpret the prairie’s importance to the general public and teach others how to be effective prairie communicators.
  • Cheerleader – Saving and restoring prairies is difficult work. CPP is committed to honoring the efforts and dedication of our prairie colleagues by promoting their efforts and events and by recognizing their excellence through yearly awards.
  • Networker – CPP connects those in need of assistance with experts in the field. We also foster collaboration and networking among professionals events such as our annual Restoration Roundup and State of the Prairie Conference.
