Collin County Chapter – Healthy Habitat: The Hidden Plants and Insects at Texas Discovery Gardens

July 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

July 2 @ 6:30 pm 8:30 pm

The grasses, trees, forbs, and shrubs at the Texas Discovery Gardens, a seven-acre garden in Dallas’ Fair Park, are managed with ecology in mind. This habitat supports a great diversity of beetles, bugs, and botanical growth. Join us to learn more about these “critters” and the plants they need to survive.

Our program opens at 6:30 with social time and testing of connections, then at 7:00, Rodney Thomas, our chapter president, will have a short chapter update, followed by Kerry’s presentation. The meeting will conclude with a Q&A session.
You can attend the hybrid meeting in person at the Heard Museum in McKinney (link below) or online via Zoom –
