Nature Area & Prayer Gardens

Something truly special is being created here on the church campus. We are transforming an abandoned roadway corridor into a unique nature, prayer and education space for adults and children.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

January 2021 Update

At the center of the Nature Area & Prayer Gardens is a new outdoor classroom for the preschool students of North Star Learning Center (NSLC), a ministry of Canyon Creek Presbyterian Church. Learn more about the NSLC.

On each end of the Outdoor Classroom, we are creating a park-like setting with walking trails, prayer and commemoration spaces, seating areas and other special features.

Master Vision Plan

The Nature Area & Prayer Gardens master vision plan shows what the space could become over time:

Park with trails, benches, and arbors • Prayer walk • Stations of the cross
Prayer and meditation space • Labyrinth • Memorial garden
Sitting areas • Shaded meeting places • Native plants and trees
Bird, butterfly, hummingbird, and bee haven • Sculptures • More …

Butterfly Garden

One element of the Nature Area & Prayer Gardens is a ±100-sq.ft. butterfly garden located in the grass area near the south end of the main parking lot.

Made possible by a grant from the Native Plant Society of Texas (http://NPSOT.org), the garden features three varieties of native milkweed plants — the only plant on which Monarch butterflies will lay their eggs — and 35 other native pollinator plants.  
 
If you would like to help develop or maintain the butterfly garden, please contact Craig Conditt.  
 

How You Can Help

Developing the Nature Area & Prayer Gardens is a grass-roots project that needs volunteers’ time and ideas as well as donations. Church members, Scout troops, friends of the church and community members are invited to help with the range of planning, installation and upkeep tasks that will be needed to make the Nature Area & Prayer Gardens a reality.
