Have you ever wondered what’s growing in those wet, muddy, marshy places that –let’s face it–even veteran hikers tend to avoid?  It turns out there are some real botanical jewels there!

Come hear Jason Singhurst, botanist and plant ecologist for Texas Parks and Wildlife, and co-author of Rare Plants of Texas, talk about some rarely-seen and restricted flora in “Herbaceous Seepage Slopes and Bogs of the West Gulf Coastal Plain.”

Jason’s talk will include many rare flora, including carnivorous plants and orchids, that inhabit the regions just to the east of Austin.

Tuesday, June 15, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m., Wild Basin Wilderness meeting room, 805 N. Capital of Texas Highway
