In 2021 Meg Inglis became the Native Plant Society of Texas (NPSOT) Executive Director. Prior to that, she coordinated NPSOT’s Native Landscape Certification Program for 7 years. For many years she worked in the field of environmental health and safety for medical device manufacturing facilities and other organizations. She has a Bachelor’s in Biology, secondary science teaching certification, and a Master’s in Public Administration. 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 decision to be solely dependent on a rainwater system drove their decision to restore their property with natives. She is a long-time member of the Native Plant Society of Texas (NPSOT), serving as Austin NPSOT Chapter President and other positions on the board for several years. Other favorite organizations include the Native Prairies Association of Texas and the Texas Society for Ecological Restoration. In addition, she participated in the 2009 Hays County Texas Master Naturalist program.
