Our area is predominately an urban landscape, and the Dallas Chapter’s primary goal is to educate homeowners, businesses, and municipalities on the benefit of planting native landscapes. Each meeting, newsletter, field trip and activity will strive to achieve this goal.
Meetings are the 3rd Monday of each month. If you cannot attend in person, the meetings will continue to be available on Zoom.
