Celebrating Our Prairie People!
June 2022

October afternoon sun over Lawther - Deer Park Prairie, by Lan Shen.
June is a special month for prairies. We continue celebrating by featuring each Wednesday one of our many marvelous NPAT members -- Our Prairie People. It is a chance to recognize and give thanks to some of the many who inspire us to keep Texas prairie.

In appreciation for Our Prairie People, new members this month can also be eligible to win a pair of new Vortex Viper binoculars! Our gratitude to the fourteen new members who have already joined in June! Current and renewing members can enter as well. Click here or see below.
Our Prairie People
Lan Shen
"Seed Shaman"
NPAT Member since 2006

Nobody around here knows seeds like Lan Shen. Especially one that gives life to a prairie plant.

Though Lan was trained and spent her working career as a chemist, she is best known in the Houston area as a master prairie seed collector, sharing them with coastal grassland enthusiasts throughout the Galveston Bay region.

As part of "Our Prairie People" month, all new members are also automatically entered to win a pair of new binoculars! These Vortex Viper HD 8x42 binoculars, perfect for birding on the prairie, have an MSRP of $639.99. They were generously donated by NPAT member David Hurt, owner of Dallas Wild Birds Unlimited. If you are in his neighborhood, drop by, pick up some birdseed, and thank him!
