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.
