Blackland Prairies, a partner of the Dallas Park and Recreation Department and other like minded supporters, has pledged through its Blackland Prairies Preservation and Protection (BP3) program to bring to the local community and beyond, an understanding and sense of prairie stewardship of the 163 acres of undeveloped prairie habitat for White Rock Lake Park located in the heart of Dallas.
Native prairies are home to a wide variety of plants and critters. Including a diverse population of pollinators, migrating and resident, that the BP3 program has set goals to save and protect. BP3 has initiated and developed tools to share a responsible role, to raise the public's awareness, and to sustain involvement in this rewarding educational outreach and maintenance program.
The Friends of White Rock Lake Park, a BP3 volunteer fundraising and support group realize that our prairies are a rare part of the other 1 percent of prairies going extinct across the United States! And have taken the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge. The BP3 program is working on a long-term plan for preservation and protection to conserve and restore our local Blackland Prairie EcoRegion. The program will do this by incorporating best practices with alternative and organic processes to work the land with immeasurable and measurable benefits to our local community and future generations.
BP3 is supported by the latest scientifically researched data, documentation and tools to benefit prairie health, including its diverse species of flora and fauna and prairie habitats. Including White Rock Lake's very rare gilgai formation, one of twenty five known in the world!
