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. (Hover over the poster below to stop the slideshow there; use arrows left and right or buttons below to navigate )
