The Native Plant Society of Texas created the Native Landscape Certification Program to encourage a migration of Texans back to nature and to promote sustainable home landscaping practices. Each workshop is a combination of classroom instruction and outside fieldwork. Each class is taught adjacent to a natural area to provide instruction in native plant identification (trees, shrubs, forbs and grasses) and their use in the landscape. We also identify common invasive exotics and appropriate native plant alternatives. A certificate of completion is awarded after each class, with an optional competency test given for an additional certificate.

Registration is open for our Fall 2017 workshops!  

We have a great line-up and invite you to consider:
