The City of League City, with the assistance of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, is working to recreate an 11.2-acre coastal prairie in an area at the Dr. Ned and Fay Dudney Clear Creek Nature Center which has been overtaken by invasive Chinse Tallow trees over the past decade. The initial tree removal will take upwards of 90 days and the nature center will be temporarily closed on Monday, July 22 and Tuesday, July 23.
The nature center originally had an existing coastal prairie, but without proper maintenance, the invasive plants have taken over. This project will remove the invasive species and clear the land to make way for the coastal prairie. With the invasive trees removed, hydro seeding of a native coastal prairie blend will follow. The complete prairie restoration process will expand over several years. Once complete, it will be a thriving native habitat for the birds and animals of the area.
