Field Day at Yegua Knobbs Preserve

Saturday, May 7th , the Yegua Knobbs Preserve (YKP) was open to the public for the 2016 Spring Field Day.  Stay tuned for another opportunity to visit at our Fall Field Day (TBA).

The YKP is a wildlife refuge and educational site owned by Pines and Prairies Land Trust.  The property features pine tree covered knobbs - two of the seven unique sandstone-capped mesas for which the area is known.  The preserve contains post oak savannah, piney woods and riparian ecosystems and even includes a spring-fed bog as well as a pasture of improved grasses.  The area boasts Houston Toad habitat and a variety of birds including Pileated Woodpecker and the Pine Warbler as well as many others.  In addition to the bog, there is a lovely beaver pond, two smaller frog ponds, miles of hiking trails and more.

 

Preserves for People

 

Pines and Prairies Land Trust is working to acquire and manage special tracts of natural landscape so that all citizens may hike, watch wildlife, and learn to value and enjoy the plants, animals, landforms, and historic legacies of our communities.

If you own a special property that you would like to see preserved in this way, please ask about our land donation program and how it can benefit you.

We work with federal, state and local institutions to achieve the maximum benefit from conservation programs in our region.
