The tour will start with the Clymer Meadow Preserve and include a trip to Tridens Prairie in Lamar County, near Paris, Texas. Clymer Meadow Preserve is located at 6210 CR 1140, Celeste, Texas 75423. Parking will be on the road verge and participants will walk a short distance to the tour starting point. Around 1pm and after lunch, we will caravan to Tridens Prairie Preserve, a strikingly different type of prairie near Paris.
Directions from Dallas via I-30:
Exit US 380/US 69 at Greenville. Go north on US 69 to Celeste. Turn west on FM 1562 , after 3 miles, turn north on CR 1140. The preserve will be on the west side of the road in 3/4 of a mile.
Get back to nature with us on May 18 at The Nature Conservancy’s Clymer Meadow Wildflower Tour. This 1,400-acre preserve contains one of the last remnants of the Blackland Prairie, an ecosystem that once stretched from the Texas coast to southern Manitoba. Catch a glimpse of many rare plant species as well as three very rare prairie types, or bring your guidebook and turn an eye to the sky for birdwatching. Pack a picnic lunch and a beverage, and bring the whole family!
