Native Plant Society of Texas, North Central Chapter: The Pollinator Pathway Project - Fort Worth
Cameron Barlow, Garden Program Specialist for the Botanical Research Institute of Texas, will discuss the Pollinator Pathway Project, which transformed the landscaped areas of the parking lot between BRIT and the Fort Worth Botanic Garden into a pollinators' paradise. Weather permitting, she'll lead a guided tour of the pathway.
The Pollinator Pathway Project is a GROW initiative. GROW, launched in February of this year, is an innovative partnership between BRIT and the Fort Worth Botanic Garden that combines the education and volunteer efforts of the two organizations.
The plants in the Pollinator Pathway were donated and planted by volunteers from several organizations, including the Native Plant Society of Texas, North Central Chapter.

Film Screening: 'The River and the Wall'- Fort Worth
Experience the US-Mexico border as you've never seen it before. Five friends embark on a 1,200 mile mountain bike, horse, and canoe journey along the Rio Grande and US-Mexico border to document the landscapes before a border wall is constructed and to explore the affects it would have. Meeting with immigrants, border patrol agents, wildlife biologists, landowners, and congressmen on both sides of the political aisle, the SXSW award-winning documentary dives into a complex and controversial issue that is way too often oversimplified. Help us bring the film and the reality of the border to the big screen by purchasing a ticket before April 25th so that we meet the minimum tickets required by the theater.
Film Screening 'The River and the Wall' - Dallas
Gorgeously filmed documentary by Ben Masters, which follows his trip along the entire 1,200 length of the river along the Texas border.
