Native Prairie
The Blackland Prairie habitat, once predominant in Collin County, has seen a sharp decline due to agricultural and urban development activities. Currently, less than 1% of the original Blackland Prairie is left untouched. PTAS fervently supports the restoration of this habitat and the bird species that call it home. The Eastern Meadowlark is showcased in our logo. Our efforts fund Northern Bobwhite restoration, and we've aided in prairie restoration projects at the Heard Museum, Connemara Meadow and the Blackland Prairie Raptor Center. The Blackland Chapter is the local chapter of the Native Prairie Association of Texas.

Organized in 1980, Prairie and Timbers Audubon Society serves Collin County and surrounding counties. We invite you and your family to join us for a wide range of nature-oriented activities. Monthly meetings are scheduled the 4th Tuesday, 6:45 pm, September through November and January through May. They are free and open to the public. Programs are related to wildlife, ecology, conservation and of course, BIRDS!

PTAS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and chapter of the National Audubon Society.3
