Christ the King Evangelical Lutheran Church in Houston invites you to a monthly environmental
education web meeting series whose theme in 2024 is Restoration, Renewal & Regeneration.

Della Barbato, Director of Education, Native Prairies Association of Texas

Native Plants and Prairies

In the past 10 years, Houston has experienced a prairie renaissance, including the building of dozens of prominent pocket prairies on school and university campuses. These native plantings are used as both teaching tools and as resilience infrastructure. Join Della Barbato, of the Native Prairies Association of Texas, as she discusses the importance and ecosystem services of native plants and prairies.  Topics covered will include the history of coastal prairies, how coastal prairies have influenced our culture, Houston Rodeo, pocket prairies, and the importance of native plants to our wildlife and pollinators. Time for Q&A with the speaker will be provided following her talk.
