The March 18th chapter meeting will take place 7–9 PM in our new and more central location: the administration building of the Tarrytown United Methodist Church, 2601 Exposition Blvd., Austin, TX 78703. The administration building is on the southeast corner of Greenlee and Exposition. There’s parking and an elevator in the garage, which can be entered from Greenlee.
The topic for the March 18th meeting is The Four Seasons of Wildlife Gardening.
Guiding from spring through winter, Meredith O’Reilly will show you which native Texas plants are in bloom, producing seeds, or providing fruit, along with what’s happening simultaneously in the wildlife world. Along the way she will provide additional tips for creating an outstanding and ever-active wildlife garden that draws birds, pollinators, and other desired wildlife year-round.
An avid wildlife gardener, Meredith O’Reilly is also a National Wildlife Federation Habitat Steward Host, NPSOT member, Capital Area Master Naturalist, and Travis Audubon committee member. She greatly enjoys teaching and writing about native flora and fauna, as well as protecting the ecosystem through thoughtful gardening. She writes about her wildlife gardening experiences at her blog, Great Stems.
Doors open at 6:30 PM for socializing. Snacks will be available then and after the presentation. Nonmembers welcome; free admission.
Remember to bring:
(1) seeds to exchange and give away;
(2) mystery plants for identification.
