We are a group of individuals interested in preserving the natural flora and fauna of the beautiful state of Texas. Our membership is a very diverse group comprised of professional botanists, a physicist, business people, retired couples, families with children and young singles. We encourage the use of native plants at every opportunity and hold classes and seminars to further our endeavors.
The threat to our native wildlife due to habitat loss and chemical abuse is a danger that cannot be ignored. Our fresh water resources are at risk from agriculture, manufacturing and oil & gas. Our goal is to rescue endangered and native plants whenever possible, encourage the reintroduction of native plants into the ecosystem & to educate the populace as to the value of a natural environment.
We had a great bird box building workshop on Saturday. It was a little cool when we started but all seven of us enjoyed the work, company, and light snack afterwards. Everybody got to take a box home. The blue birds are already looking for nesting cavities and if not blue birds we might have a chickadee, titmouse, ash throated flycatcher, or wren raise their young in the box.
