Native Plants & Prairies Day, May 3, 2014 - Free family fun

Native Plants & Prairies Day

The North Texas Master Naturalists will host the second annual Native Plants & Prairies Day on Saturday, May 3, 2014 from 10 AM to 4 PM, at the Bath House Cultural Center grounds on White Rock Lake.
 
This will be a FREE family event with activities for the kids including performances by the Dallas Storytellers Guild. There will be over 20 demonstration and information outreach booths, 30 minute wildflower and bug walks/talks beginning at 10:30 AM, and a series of speakers giving short talks/lectures of 25 minutes each on the hour and half hour starting at 10:30 AM.
 
The theme of this year’s event is Inviting Nature Home, and will focus on what we can do in finding a place for natives in our own yards. Native plants and grasses have been an important part of Texas history, and are disease and drought-resistant alternatives to non-native species. Birds, animals and insects all depend on these native plants to survive.
 
The event will be a collaborative effort with a variety of organizations having booths and participating. The list includes the Native Plant Society of Texas, Native Prairies Association of Texas, Texas Discovery Gardens, Trinity River Audubon Center, Audubon Dallas, Nature Conservancy, Sierra Club – Dallas Group, Texas Honeybee Guild, Butterflies Unlimited, John Bunker Sands Wetland Center, The Stream Team, Dallas County Master Gardeners, Friends of the Bath House, For The Love of The Lake.
