Native Plants and Prairies Day highlights the importance and value of our North Texas prairies as habitat for insects, birds, and mammals, and as a vital natural resource. The Blackland prairie is unique to Texas and most of it has been destroyed by development. The ecoregion extends from the Red River to the Gulf Coast. According to the World Wildlife fund, less than 1% of the original Blackland prairie vegetation remains.
