General Meeting Announcement
10/24/2017 7:30 PM
The Native Plant Project will present "Transformations: Outmoded City Dump to Nurturing Nature Park" by Christina Mild. In September, Christina gave us guidelines on how to successfully transplant native species. This month she'll present a follow-up, with a bit of history, on how volunteers have slowly transformed Harlingen's old city dump into a place of beauty and solace for humans and a wonderful habitat for animals. Harlingen's Hugh Ramsey Nature Park is unique in the valley because revegetation has occurred over the partially buried remains of a municipal trash heap. It is one of only a few projects in which volunteers have been responsible for planning and executing improvements in plant diversity and installing wildlife-attracting features. How do volunteers effectively transform a city-owned property with very little funding? What's actually in Hugh Ramsey Nature Park? Come find out on Tuesday, October 24 at 7:30 p.m. at the Valley Nature Center, 301 S. Border, Weslaco.
The Board of Directors meeting will precede the General Meeting at 6:30pm.
All are welcome!
