Native Plants and Prairies Day – Sat. May 2nd – White Rock Lake
“Discover the beauty and value of Texas native plants and grasses, disease and drought-resistant alternatives to non-native species.”
The North Texas Master Naturalists group will host their 3rd annual Native Plants & Prairies Day Saturday, May 2nd, from 10 to 3, at the Bath House Cultural Center on White Rock Lake. As the event’s website states, this is a free family event with activities for both children and adults. There will be dozens of demonstration and information outreach booths, guided wildflower and prairie walks (30 minutes each) offered beginning at 10:30 AM, and a series of speakers giving short talks every hour and half hour starting at 10:30 AM. Finally, there will be a raffle with gifts provided by some of the twelve different event sponsors.
Prairie grasses are glorious things! The more you experience the diversity and resilience of our native Texas plants, the more you will appreciate and marvel at their beauty. It’s also astonishing to discover how distinctive looking and low-maintenance landscaping can be when one turns to the species naturally designed to thrive in our area. This is an event well worth attending, whether you are a native plant novice or a forb aficionado! (Visit http://public.ntmn.org/ for more info!)
