Description

Jaime Gonzalez, Community Conservation Director for the Katy Prairie Conservancy, will address Caring for the Plants that Care for Us in a web meeting. He will discuss the importance of native plants for biodiversity, water absorption, carbon sequestration, the economy, and creating a sense of place. He will link the well-being of eco-systems to human well-being. Jaime will also discuss the work of Katy Prairie Conservancy to restore native prairie, "re-wild" Houston with pocket prairies, offer citizen conservation opportunities and a new initiative to encourage residents to plant the "nine natives" in their yards. Jaime will give details on using these native plantings on your property, will provide resources and outlets for getting native plants, and will even delve into the ethics of saving wildlife by providing native plant habitat. After his talk, there will be time for Q&A to answer your native plant questions.
