September Native Plant Society of Texas Meeting

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

butterflyThe Lindheimer Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas will have its September meeting on the 15th at 7:00 at the GVTC Auditorium.

We will have a very special guest, Cathy Downs, who will give a presentation about Monarch conservation. She is the chair of the ‘Bring Back the Monarchs to Texas’ Program. This program works to develop monarch habitat project in cooperation with Native Plant Society of Texas and Monarch Watch. Cathy is also a certified Monarch Larval Monitoring Project educator and teaches Monarch biology, habitat and migration at various locations throughout Texas.

Seed Exchange

We will also have our annual seed exchange at this meeting! Suggestions for seed exchange:

It is not a formal presentation. Just bring what you’d like to share. Some seeds will be available in bulk so be sure to bring plastic sandwich/snack bags, glass jars, paper envelopes – even used ones, a vessel in which to place seeds to take home. There should be some extra available bags and envelopes. Please bring any extras you may have.

Even if you don’t have seeds to exchange, there will be plenty of seeds for members to take and start. Just be sure to bring a vessel in which to place seeds to take home. It is also acceptable to divvy out seeds in individual packages for taking.

Labeling is very important.

Ron Chang says, “I figure that most of the stuff we bring will have at least a 10% germination rate, so about 20 seeds should bring success. Native grasses are fine.”

Native Plant Society Meeting for February

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

NPSoT-logoThe February meeting of the local chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas will feature the program ‘Texas Wildscapes’, presented by Kelly Conrad Simon. She has been with Texas Parks and Wildlife for 19 years and currently serves as the Urban Wildlife Biologist for the Central Texas area.

The program emphasizes using native plants in landscaped beds to provide critical components of habitat: food and shelter. By providing the elements of habitat (food, shelter, and water) in their gardens, Texans can attract an exciting variety of birds, butterflies, frogs, and lizards and bring the beauty and vitality of nature home.

This meeting will be held Tuesday, February 17 at 7:00 pm at the GVTC Auditorium located at 36101 FM 3159, Canyon Lake. For more information visit the Lindheimer NPSoT website.
