Yesterday was a big day for the Tiger Prairie! Katy High School was visited by members from the KISD Board of Trustees, where founding prairie teachers Dr. Rhonda Burrough and Kelly Knight received a $2500 Inspiring Imagination educational grant! These funds will be used to purchase prairie plants (like native TX milkweed, little bluestem, gamma grass, and many others!) to help restore the Tiger Prairie back to its original, wild-beauty! These native plants will be part of our permanent outdoor classroom, creating a legacy of learning for upcoming generations. Many thanks to the Katy ISD Education Foundation for their generous support!

We are so excited to announce the generous support of our latest sponsor, CEMEX. CEMEX is well-known for being active in the communities in which the company works and lives, investing heavily to support the social and economic development of the Katy community. CEMEX will be donating funds to build a series of crushed-granite trails, making the Tiger Prairie accessible to all. Thank you CEMEX!
