7th Annual Prairie Day - May 13 (9 a.m. - 3 p.m.)

     

      Martha & Paxton Motheral, Honorary Chairs  

    Come Celebrate BRIT's 30th Anniversary!

     
    This is a FREE family-friendly, annual festival of arts and crafts that includes flight demonstrations of majestic wild birds and live music from Texas musicians. Families learned about hardy Texas native plants that grow on the prairie. 
     
    Visitors also learned about the cultural and natural history that defines our region through activities and games for the whole family. BRIT wants to further educate the public on the importance of our natural resources and the region's native ecosystems, and how restoring native plants can benefit homeowners as well as wildlife.

    Birds of Prey

    All Things Reptilian

    Awesome Bands

    Schedule

    There's no better way to learn about the birds of prey, or raptors than to meet them in person! Blackland Prairie Raptor Center introduced children and adults to the world of raptors. These hawks, owls, and falcons are well trained, and at this show you will learn what makes these birds an important part of our environment.
    The Texas Discovery Gardens helped us learn how reptiles fill a critical role both as predator and prey species. Reptiles are important components of the food webs in most ecosystems and can also be important seed dispersers. They are also known as pollinators and are a useful anthropogenic role in ecosystems by helping control the numbers of serious agricultural pests by consuming rodent and insect pests.
