In addition to the Eco Expo, attendees will have a number of educational entertainment options, which will include:

Native and Adapted plants are not only beautiful, water-efficient additions to your landscape, but they can be useful tools to attract beneficial wildlife as well.

An open house for the Texas Master Naturalist program. NTMN will be accepting applications for its 2020 class from Oct. 1 to Nov. 30. Please join us to gather more information on the training and our volunteer program. Master Naturalist Trainees receive in-depth education in wildlife and natural resource management, customized to focus on our local ecosystems.

This is one of the most fun activities that we do. This is how we do the Plant Swap: Each of us brings a plant (better to bring two) with a piece of paper attached to it explaining all the good qualities and details about cultivation. Chairs are placed in a circle with the plants in the center, then each person stands up and shows their plant and tells the group about it. After all have been presented, numbers are drawn and the game begins.

#1 takes a plant and places it in front of him or herself.

The ladybug has been deemed “a fairy godmother for plants.” In their lifetime of about one year, a single ladybug can eat as many as 5,000 aphids — that’s almost 14 garden pests a day! Sadly, popular agricultural practices have contributed to the rapid decline in ladybug populations. This class is an opportunity to learn what steps to take to protect this vital component of our ecosystem. By taking our pledge, and showing ladybugs and other beneficial insects some love, you can make an impact.

Registration required.
