The Fredericksburg Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas
invites you to explore the heart of our native Edwards Plateau ecosystem.
Willkommen ~ Welcome
We are Hill Country!
Draw an equilateral triangle. Austin and San Antonio anchor the easternmost points.
The triangle climbs into the hill country and onto the Edwards Plateau, its tip touching Fredericksburg and Gillespie County.
The pink dome of Enchanted Rock rises to the north of us.
This entire area is an intricate patchwork of oak and juniper woodlands,
savannas interwoven with grasslands, tree mottes and shrubs. Always native blossoms stand ready to amaze the viewer.
Ours is truly a rich and diverse natural heritage.
The Fredericksburg chapter of NPSOT does not hold a regular meeting during the holiday seasons of November and December. May your celebrations be ones of peace and joy.
