Join NPSOT-Williamson County on Thursday, October 12, 2023, when our featured topic will be Williamson County’s Native Plant Rescue Project with Ashley Landry.  Free and open to the public. The meeting begins at 7:00 PM.  Our guest speaker’s presentation begins after a short business meeting.

This month’s presentation will NOT be recorded for YouTube.

About our topic: The Native Plant Rescue Project of Williamson County has hosted over 45 plant rescues and rescued over 225 species of native plants since the creation of the project in 2022. As a joint project of the Native Plant Society of Texas-Williamson County Chapter and the Good Water TX Master Naturalist chapter, the project works with developers to ethically rescue unusual native plants and transfer them to growers and conservation partners. Come learn about how the project was created and about some of their conservation successes.

About our speaker: Ashley Landry is a member of the Williamson County Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas, a Texas Master Naturalist and the creator of the Native Plant Rescue Project. As a Texas Master Naturalist, she has a background in acoustic monitoring and sound analysis, which she used to conduct acoustic surveys for The Williamson County Conservation Foundation. She is also a self-taught, plant-obsessed citizen scientist and loves to search out and save the unusual native plants in Williamson County.
