Hosted at city community centers, Native Neighborhoods experts offer guidance on native plants and their pollinators, landscape design, planting, maintenance and water conservation. Native Neighborhoods is a collaboration between the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge, City of Fort Worth Forestry and the Water Department.
