BRIT’s Prairie Day – Celebrating our Prairie Heritage
Saturday, May 16, 2015     9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Come celebrate the beauty of the native landscape of North Texas with BRIT! Join us for this free family-friendly, annual festival of arts and crafts that includes flight demonstrations of majestic wild birds and live music from Texas musicians. Families will learn about hardy Texas native plants that grow on the prairie. Children will learn how to build a bug house or paint using leaves, and everyone will learn about the cultural and natural history that defines our region through activities and games for the whole family. BRIT hopes to educate the public on the importance of our natural resources and the region’s native ecosystems, and how restoring native plants can benefit homeowners as well as wildlife.
