The Marysee Prairie is one of the last remnants of tallgrass prairie in the Big Thicket region. Come assist Texas Land Conservancy in their ongoing effort to revive and maintain the native grasses and wildflowers on this site near Batson, Texas.

There is a possible option to carpool from central Houston for those interested.
