Native Plant Society of Texas Fall Landscaping Class Schedule Announced

Saturday, October 27, 2018

The Native Plant Society of Texas is offering 15 landscaping classes this fall at 10 different locations around the state. The one-day classes are part of the Native Landscaping Certification Program, a series which teaches best practices for native plant landscaping – including wildlife habitat gardening. Classes are intended to be useful both to homeowners and professionals. Four levels are offered this fall. Anyone may register for a Level One class, which is a prerequisite for all the other levels. New this year is Landscaping for Birds which is being offered only in McKinney as a pilot program. It will be offered in additional locations next spring if there is sufficient interest. Each class includes both classroom instruction and fieldwork, with an emphasis on helping students become familiar with the identification and use of specific plants native to their region.
