The Native Plant Society has chosen Meg Inglis to be the coordinator for its Native Landscape Certification Project.
Meg’s experiences and interests make her well-prepared for the role of coordinator. She has previously served as president and board member for the Austin Chapter and volunteers frequently on Society projects. She has been involved in several restoration projects in the area northwest of Austin. Her past work experience includes developing and implementing training materials in a corporate environment.
“I am looking forward to assisting the Society in the roll out of this exciting program,” Meg said. “By landscaping with native plants, Texans can do their part in preserving natural habitats and conserving water during this critical time of rapidly increasing development and diminishing water resources.”
We are extremely pleased to have Meg on board with this project and look forward to a mutually rewarding relationship. Carol Feldman, chair of the NLCP Steering Committee, said that many well-qualified candidates submitted applications, and that it was extremely difficult to select just one. The committee evaluated all applications before making their decision.
The Society decided at the January State Board meeting to create landscape classes for homeowners and professionals across multiple regions of Texas, and to hire a coordinator to schedule the classes and help develop content. The program incorporates regional classes previously developed by chapters in San Antonio and Dallas/Ft Worth.
