Why Native Plants?

the Kerrville Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas created the poster series  “Why Native Plants?” for the Exhibit “Wildflowers and other Natives,” displayed at the Riverside Nature Center this past spring and summer. We present it again on our Website in ongoing support of Texas Native Plant Week.

The Kerrville Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas maintains two Native Plant beds at the Riverside Nature Center.  Deer-resistant plants (those low on the list of deer preferences) are featured outside the fence, while plants overgrazed by deer are highlighted behind the fence.
