Native Pollinator Habitat Grant Program

Application Deadline: September 15

The Clear Lake Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas awards grants to nature centers, schools, educational groups and others to help fund development and maintenance of pollinator habitats using native plants, shrubs or trees on public sites in Brazoria, Galveston or Harris Counties of Texas. Priority is given to projects located in Brazoria Co., Galveston Co., and the southeast quadrant of Harris County. The goal of this program is to:

  • Educate members of the Society and the public about pollinator conservation,
  • Build or restore pollinator habitats in order to support and increase pollinator populations and diversity,
  • Promote the research, conservation and utilization of native plants and plant habitats of Texas through education, outreach and example.

Clear Lake Chapter Annual Awards

Recognizing achievements in the field of native plants.

Nominees must have accomplishments that benefit the community at large. Accomplishments may be in education, research, and/or outreach. The nomination deadline is November 1. The award will be presented at the December meeting.

Native Landscape Certification Program

Our Native Landscape Certification Program (NLCP) is a series of day-long classes highlighting best practices for native plant landscaping, including wildlife habitat gardening.

Each class consists of an indoor training session and a plant identification session. We show you plants native to the local ecoregion and illustrate their use in the landscape.

The Clear Lake Chapter offers a Level 1 class in the spring and fall. The class schedule is posted one week before registration opens on the Native Plant Society website.

Level 1 registration fee is $45. For all classes other than Level 1, the registration fee is $50 for Native Plant Society members or $65 for non-members.
