 The Katy Prairie Conservancy Horned Lizard re-introduction project has begun!  On Friday, June 17 and Sunday, June 19, Dr. Cassidy Johnson, president of the Coastal Prairie Partnership, led a group of volunteers, including some Gulf Coast Texas Master Naturalists, across several promising re-introduction sites to assess conditions and survey existent plants, animals and insects.  Although no resident Horned Lizards were spotted, over 50 different species of flora and fauna were identified and cataloged.  Some promising sites were tagged and other, less promising sites, crossed off the list.  If you would like to take part in this project, send Cassidy an email at cassidybjohnson@gmail.com and ask to be put on her Horned Lizard Project volunteer list for future opportunities.
