Barrera Indiangrass Wildlife Sanctuary Monthly Workday

Sunday, October 18th, 2020 from 9:00am to 12:00pm (CT)


It's been a long summer, but after many months of discussion, planning, and preparation, Park Rangers and the Native Prairies Society of Texas will be holding our monthly volunteer workday at Louis Rene Barrera Indiangrass Wildlife Sanctuary!

Attendance is strictly limited to eight participants due to restrictions on gatherings in City parks and preserves. Additionally, attendees are expected to wear masks for the duration of the event (except to drink water) and practice physical distancing to ensure the safety of all staff and participants. Participants are encouraged to bring their own work gloves, and are advised that water and snacks will not be provided. Please also read the full rules for attendance below!

This month we will likely be collecting native grass and forb seed for re-use at Indiangrass and other preserves, as well as monitoring seed ripeness. However, this may change depending on attendance and weather. Thank you for staying adaptable!

A map of the main gate of the preserve is below:

Please use this link as Google Maps has trouble giving directions to the preserve as listed! Be prepared to walk up to two miles and dress for the weather -- which at this time of year could be pretty much anything.

If you have any questions, please email Park Ranger Owen Moorhead at Thank you for your support!
