Native Plants for Houses of Worship
September 10, 2017 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
The Interfaith Environmental Network of Houston invites the interested public to attend a free lecture on Native Plants for Houses of Worship. There are many actions that faith communities can take to be more planet-friendly and meet their needs at the same time. One of these actions is to landscape with plants which consume less precious water, provide a sense of place to their campus and neighborhood, and better support wildlife. Join Jaime González, Community Conservation Director for the Katy Prairie Conservancy, for a presentation about using native plantings on your faith community campus. He will touch on how native plants are important for xeriscaping, provide resources and outlets for getting native plants, and even delve into the ethics of saving wildlife. Jaime holds a Master of Education in Curriculum & instruction – Science Education and a B.S. In Biology. The Interfaith Environmental Network of Houston is the Houston chapter of TX Interfaith Power & Light, a division of TX Impact. Native Plants for Houses of Worship will take place on Sunday, September 10, from 4 5:30 p.m. at the University of St. Thomas, Robertson Hall, as well as online, via web meeting. Please register for this event at www.eventbrite.com, for planning purposes. The lecture will be recorded, so if you can’t make it, you can still get a copy of the recording to review later. The University of St. Thomas is located at 3800 Montrose Blvd. in Houston. Metro bus lines 82, 25 & 56 stop nearby.
