Small Scale Land Restoration – A Case Study – Aug 15

August 15, 2023 @ 6:00 pm 7:30 pm

Join the Lindheimer Chapter for a presentation from Meg Inglis, the Executive Director of the Native Plant Society. This in-person meeting will also be available over Zoom, click here for details on how to join.

“When my husband and I built our home on two acres near Dripping Springs we decided to use native plants because we wanted to provide habitat for the local wildlife and we didn’t want to devote a lot of extra water to a lawn. (Our rainwater collection system was the only source of household water.) This presentation provides an overview of the restoration projects we conducted on our property – “Villa Caliche” – over a 22-year period beginning in 2000: our objectives, methods, considerations, successes, and lessons learned.”

In 2021 Meg Inglis was delighted to assume the position of Executive Director, Native Plant Society of Texas. For 7 years prior to that, she coordinated the Society’s Native Landscape Certification Program. Meg’s passion for native plants began in 2000 when she and her family built their home on a 2-acre parcel of land near Dripping Springs. Her knowledge of ecology and their sole dependence on a rainwater system made using native plants a natural decision. She is a long-time member of the Native Plant Society of Texas, the Native Prairies Association of Texas, and the Texas Society for Ecological Restoration. Meg has a Bachelor’s in Biology, secondary science teaching certification, and a Master’s in Public Administration.
