Thanks to music attorney Ed Fair's vision to launch the Commons Ford Prairie Restoration Organization, there's a new crowd flocking to Commons Ford Park. When he discovered the park as a first-time birder in 2001, he didn't find many birds in the prairie. Dominated by non-native grasses, it didn't offer much food for wildlife. After teaming up with Austin Parks and Recreation, wildlife experts, Native American Seed, and dedicated volunteers, the prairie's going to the birds, bees, and butterflies.
