NTMN May Chapter Meeting – Transform Your Yard with Native Plants with Lor Stierlen
Wednesday, May 04, 2022 | 630pm-830pm
Join us for our May meeting where you will learn how our speaker, Lorelei (Lor) Stierlen, went about replacing a yard full of Bermuda grass with a native pocket prairie. She will be sharing methods, alternatives, hints, tips, lessons learned, and resources to transform your yard from invasive dreariness into an oasis of hope.
The corresponding Field Trip at Native Plants and Prairies Day is on May 7, 2022 from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. at White Rock Lake’s Bath House Cultural Center. Co-sponsored by NTMN & the Native Prairies Association of Texas. Check out all the activities and talks at the event’s website here.
