Come join us at 7 pm, Thursday, March 1 at the Allen Heritage Center, 100 E. Main St., Allen to learn about the history of our Blackland Prairie region of Texas. Carol Clark, Texas Master Naturalist and Collin County Chapter of the Texas Native Plant Society President will present "The Blackland Prairie: Then and Now." This is a peek into the past at what kinds of amazing plants, animals, soil, hydrology  and conditions the first European settlers encountered when they reached this area, and how human activity in the region has permanently altered this region. There is far less than one tenth of percent the original Blackland Prairie remaining in its original un-plowed state, and it is one of the rarest and most threatened eco-regions in the world. All are welcome and refreshments will be served. Visit our website for more information: allengardenclub.org
