Native Plant Walk

June 17, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Offered in Partnership with The San Antonio Water System

Explore our 11-acre Texas Native Trail with a Master Naturalist.  This area has its own distinctive and diverse ecological region of Texas, varying in soil, plant life, topography, and weather. There are more than 250 plant species in collections that represent three ecosystems. In the East Texas Pineywoods, visitors find Pines, Sweetgum, Sassafras, and other acidic soil-loving woodland species. The Hill Country area features Live Oaks, Juniper, Texas Mountain Laurel, Eve’s necklace, Blanco Crabapple, Possum Haw, Hop-tree, Uvalde Maples, and other limestone tolerant plants. In the South Texas region, Dryland trees and thorny brush such as Torchwood, Mexican Olive, mesquite, Texas Ebony, and Huisaache thrive. On this Walk you’ll learn about the medicinal uses of native plants as well as their historical and cultural uses, and which are favored by birds, butterflies and other wildlife.

Meet at the Carriage House. Tour leaves at 10 am   Walk is free to members or with paid admission, but registration is required.
