Native Plants and Prairies Day
May 6, 2017
Join us for a FREE fun day at White Rock Lake!
The North Texas Master Naturalists will host the fifth annual Native Plants and Prairies Day on Saturday, May 6, 2017 from 10 AM to 3 PM, at the Bath House Cultural Center grounds at White Rock Lake.
Highlights for the day include 15 thirty-minute wildflower and prairie walks guided by local experts, a lecture series by naturalist experts, and 30 demonstrations/information/outreach booths, raptors, and snakes. For the first time we will have local artists displaying their nature-inspired creations for purchase.
Come help us construct our own Climate Ribbon tree during the event. The Climate Ribbon project is an opportunity for us to share what each of us stands to lose to climate change and affirm our solidarity as we unite to fight against it.
Other offerings include a raffle with terrific gifts provided by event sponsors, children’s activities, and food trucks.
This FREE family event has been enthusiastically received by the local community for its focus on Texas plants and animals and the benefits of using native plants in home landscapes as disease and drought-resistant alternatives to non-native species. Our native birds, animals, and insects all depend on these native plants for survival.
Major sponsors for the event include: Botanical Research Institute of Texas, Dallas Zoo, Pariveda Solutions, Texas Discovery Gardens, Whole Earth Provision Co., Wild Birds Unlimited, Arborilogical Services, Inc., Rhode’s Nursery and Nature Store, Earth Day Texas, and the Dallas Sierra Club.
