Welcome!

Please join us at NPSOT-H to enjoy and learn about our local native plants. All of our activities, such as our monthly meetings and field trips, are open to the public and almost all are free. Go to “Native Plant Lists” tab to get information about native plants for the garden. 

New Information on Wildscape Sale Plants posted on Wildscape Workshop Page. Until the plants are delivered Friday morning, the list is still considered tentative.

We had a very successful Wildscape Workshop last Saturday! Thanks to the Houston Zoo and Texas Parks & Wildlife for co-sponsoring this event!
All the speakers were fantastic.
