From Charlene and BR Koehler presentation on ranch Prairie Restoration
For advice and resources on restoration, our website has a “Favourite Links” section at: http://www.prairiehabitats.com/Links.html
You are very fortunate there in Texas to be the home of the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Centre at the University of Texas in Austin. I was there a few years ago, and they are a fantastic resource on native species restoration. It is well worth a visit, and you will learn much of value there. Their website is at: https://www.wildflower.org
Also the Coastal Prairie Partnership in Texas has a meeting on Texas prairie restoration coming up in May. Their excellent website is at: http://prairiepartner.org/events/southeastern-prairie-symposium plus the Native Plant Society of Texas has a meeting March 12 at: http://txmn.org/coastal/event/at-npsot-spring-symposium-austin/ and http://npsot.org/wp/about-2/who-we-are/
The Tall Grass Prairie Centre at the University of Northern Iowa at www.tallgrassprairiecenter.org/ is another resource I highly recommend.
