The Native Landscape Certification Program (NLCP) is a series of classes that teaches best practices for native plant landscaping – including wildlife habitat gardening. Each class includes both classroom instruction and fieldwork, with an emphasis on helping students become familiar with the identification and use of specific plants native to their region. Students will see native plants in their natural habitat and in landscapes. Each level presents 45 native Texas plants recommended for your landscape and 5 plants to avoid.
All NPSOT Williamson County Chapter classes are held from 8 am to 4 pm at the Georgetown Public Library, 402 W 8th St, Georgetown, TX 78626.
