Deer Park Prairie fundraising goal met
Organizers said they have reached their fundraising goal to save Deer Park Prairie.
The Bayou Land Conservancy announced Tuesday that it had raised enough funds to save the 53-acre undeveloped piece of land thanks to more than 1,000 donors.
Conservationists see the land, that’ home to extremely rare plants and wildlife, as a hidden treasure.
The deadline to raise $4 million was Tuesday.
The landowner had planned to turn the area into a subdivision if the fundraising goal was not met.
