Presented by nationally-renowned Landscape Architect Rosa Finsley.

Rosa will discuss the restoration work in the fields adjacent to the historical Frankford church and cemetery. For many years, the field was kept mowed and manicured as part of the church grounds. After allowing for the native vegetation to grow back, this piece of the Blackland Prairie has become a large part of the heritage tourism being promoted for this historical site in the suburbs of Dallas. Wildflowers and other native plants which had probably not flowered in many generations were found to come back across these fields. Rosa will also provide a slide show illustrating some of the native plants being used as landscaping around the church and cemetery to capture the natural setting of this location. This restoration project in North Texas is a great example of steps that can be taken to revert manicured park areas and grounds back to a tallgrass prairie landscape.

Residents in Denton and Collin counties who are interested in lessening their ecological footprint on their communities now have a place to come together in the Sierra Club Cross Timbers Group. 

This will be an introductory meeting where attendees can join the Sierra Club, the nation’s largest and most influential grassroots. Members can learn about upcoming meetings where guest speakers will discuss protecting natural areas, water conservation, long-range water planning, gardening and hiking trips. Members will also learn about environmental issues that directly impact Denton and Collin counties. 

The Sierra Club Cross Timbers Group will hold meetings in both Denton and Collin counties. If anyone would like to serve on the group’s leadership committee or for more information, contact Brandi Price at [email protected].

UPCOMING: The group will hold a water planning meeting with water planning and conservation expert speakers from the Sierra Club’s Lone Star Chapter and local water districts and municipalities on March 23. SEE GREENSOURCEDFW.ORG CALENDAR LISTING.
