Texas Master Naturalists presents “Natives in the Home Landscapes”

February 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Museum of South Texas History welcomes Sylvia Casselman and Rick Leland to present “Natives in the Home Landscape.”

The presentation will feature how landscaping with native plants can reduce lawn maintenance and create a healthy habitat. Casselman and Leland will discuss native trees, shrubs, herbaceous plants and vines, and how to plant them. After the presentation, visitors are welcome to stroll through the museum’s landscape, which is an example of diverse native plants: maguey, nopal, vasey’s adelia and many more. Even in urban downtown Edinburg, one may find one of the variety of insects, butterflies and birds that visit the museum grounds.

Casselman and Leland are members in the Rio Grande Valley chapter of the Texas Master Gardeners and Texas Master Naturalist programs locally operated by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension.

This presentation is included in the fee for regular museum admission. FRIENDS of MOSTHistory with valid FRIENDship cards are admitted free as a benefit of FRIENDship.
