2022 Native Plant Symposium at TDG – Native Host Plants for Texas Butterflies & Moths

2022 Native Plant Symposium at TDG – Native Host Plants for Texas Butterflies & Moths
Saturday, July 30, 2022  |  1:30pm – 3:00pm

Virtual Presentation by Lynne & Jim Weber, Texas Master Naturalists

Want to attract beautiful and beneficial pollinators like butterflies and moths to your garden? Learn about the special relationships that exist between several native plant species and the butterflies and moths that use them, beyond monarchs and milkweeds! Explore why native plants are essential to healthy ecosystems, the role of nectar and host plants, and how these insects find the desired host plant species upon which to lay their eggs. This talk will leave you with the knowledge and resources needed to encourage and appreciate a wider diversity of caterpillars, butterflies, and moths in a Texas native plant garden.

Both Lynne and Jim Weber are recently retired from 30+ year, accomplished careers at IBM. They are certified Texas Master Naturalists and Lynne is a past president of the Capital Area chapter. The Webers are dedicated naturalists who have been studying Texas natural history since they moved to Austin in 1989. They have served on the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve (BCP) Citizens Advisory Council (CAC) as well as on the boards of the Big Bend Natural History Association, the Big Bend Conservancy, and the Chihuahuan Desert Research Institute. They conduct Golden-cheeked Warbler and Colima Warbler surveys, lead guided hikes, restore native habitat, map and remove invasive plants, and manage an 8-acre preserve that is part of the BCP.

Their nature photography and writing appears on Flickr (https://www.flickr.com/photos/webersaustin/) and on their monthly blog (http://naturewatchaustin.blogspot.com) as well as in several nature publications.  Lynne and Jim have two wonderful books that we have for sale in our Texas Discovery Gardens gift shop called, “Native Host Plants for Moths” and “Native Host Plants for Butterflies”.

Tickets for the Texas Discovery Garden’s Native Plant Symposium will be on sale on this page soon!
