Native Prairie Plant-a-thon @ Sheldon Lake State Park &  Environmental Learning Center | Houston | Texas | United States

Volunteers are needed to plant 2,500 native coastal prairie grasses and forbs. This event will help the park continue the restoration of 400 acres from farmland to native prairie habitat and reestablish the diverse wildlife that it once had. Located in northeast Harris County, Sheldon Lake State Park & Environmental Learning Center is visited by thousands of children and adults each year who take guided nature walks, study ecosystems, go fishing, experience pond ecology, and see alternative energy in action. Restoring this prairie will enhance the educational programs at the Learning Center. We invite you to be a part of the ongoing restoration work on the Sheldon Prairie.
