This year’s conference will feature the brightest minds in prairie restoration, acquisition, and education from from Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana. We have nearly thirty different federal, state, and private institutions active in this event.

​​Our presentations and field trips will provide timely information about saving and restoring prairies in a rapidly changing world, including:

*   Using high-impact community engagement strategies
