This walk will be led by Joan Miller, a former president and now treasurer of Native Plant Society of Texas’s San Antonio chapter, and Drake White of The Nature Bar. Both are active plant propagators, identifiers of native plants, and teachers/event leaders of all things related to native plants.
The purposes of this walk are appreciating natives in the natural areas along the park trails near the Urban Ecology Center (UEC) and learning how to incorporate what you see in nature into your own home landscape.
The lead sponsor for this event will be the San Antonio chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas (NPSOT).This event’s general sponsors are the Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy, the San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department’s Natural Areas Office, the Alamo Area Master Naturalists, and the Alamo Group of the Sierra Club.
Please meet by 8:00 am SHARP at the UEC to sign up for a 8:10 am departure. We will walk along several of the trails from the UEC. There will be brief explanations of natives seen along the way that are candidates for the home landscape.
Minors only when accompanied by an adult parent/guardian. Dogs allowed if leashed and socialized. DIFFICULTY: Easy, definitely suitable for families. Flat terrain, slow-paced. This will be a less than 2-mile walk and last about two hours ending back at the Urban Ecology Center around 10:30 am.
