"Spring in the Lower Rio Grande Valley”
presented by — Jann Miller
Jann Miller is a native plant enthusiast who has been gardening in the LRGV since her arrival here in 1983. She joined the NPP in 1997 and soon became a volunteer at the Valley Nature Center under the directorship of Christina Mild. There she met many people who were knowledgeable about native plants and were willing to share their knowledge with her. She became a land steward for US Fish & Wildlife and Texas Parks & Wildlife with the partnership of the late Bill MacWhorter, her mentor and friend. Together they spent many hours doing maintenance and revegetation work on two adjoining land tracts between Weslaco and Mercedes; the Adams tract, for TPW and the Mercedes tract for USFW. These two tracts eventually became Estero Llano Grande State Park, one of the World Birding Centers. She is currently president and a Lifetime Member of the NPP.
The program will be February 27th at 7:30 PM at the Valley Nature Center, 301 South Border St. in Weslaco behind Gibson Park The public is invited. There is no charge to attend.
