Native Plant Landscape Design Class

April 25, 2015 (Sat) 8:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Mitchell Lake Audubon Center - 10750 Pleasanton Rd
Native plants and special design features can create a beautiful landscape that also creates a haven for interesting birds and butterflies. You can start by simply putting up a birdbath or planting a fruit-bearing native shrub in your garden. It's not difficult to be successful, and you'll be amazed at what you'll attract while also conserving water. Join me in learning how to create a design on graph paper, what features to incorporate, as well as some common drought hardy plants to include so that you can open your back door to a world of wildlife. A short hike through the Mitchell Lake Audubon Center Wildscape Garden will allow participants to see plants in nature and to look at various groupings and bed shapes for design ideas. BIO: Judit Green is a 25 year employee of Texas Parks & Wildlife Dept. with a degree in Wildlife & Fisheries Science from Texas A&M University.
