HOUSTON - There are seven days left for the Bayou Land Conservancy to raise $650,000.
They're trying to raise funds to purchase the Deer Park Prairie, which is set to become a subdivision if the group can't meet the deadline.
However, the group is not giving up hope yet.
They're hoping to get a mention on the Colbert Report, which could draw nation wide attention to the endangered ecosystem.
So far, the group has raised $3.3 million from more than 500 donors.
