Tanglewood Prairie in Lexington, TX is owned and managed by TLC. It is a small tract of post oak savanna, a unique ecosystem that is a transitional zone between the Blackland prairie and the pineywoods. Our goal is to make sure this prairie remains intact and isn’t overgrown with woody vegetation.
The Native Prairies Association of Texas (NPAT) holds a conservation easement on the property and will be our partner for the workday. Work tasks will include cleaning up brush around the entrance/TLC preserve sign, clipping woody stems, and possibly trimming some trees. Some tools will be provided, but if you have loppers or gloves, please bring them.
Wear comfortable shoes and bring plenty of water. There are no bathroom facilities located on the preserve. Parking is limited and we encourage carpooling if possible.
LOCATION: There is no address but if you type Tanglewood Prairie into google maps or put in the GPS coordinates 30.48050° N, 96.99050° W it pops up. It is on the East side of Highway 77 approximately 4 miles North of Lexington, TX and 13 miles South of Rockdale Texas. There is a sign at the prairie.
Please RSVP if you plan on attending so we can update you if plans change (ex. If there is poor working weather)
