Michelle Villafranca, Natural Resource Specialist for the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge, will discuss the efforts of Native Neighborhoods, an exciting City of Fort Worth initiative that encourages residents to plant native pollinator plants in their home gardens. Native Neighborhoods works to improve habitat, one home at a time, by providing five free native plants, a tree and a water conservation kit to Fort Worth residents.

Hosted at city community centers, Native Neighborhoods experts offer guidance on native plants and their pollinators, landscape design, planting, maintenance and water conservation. Native Neighborhoods is a collaboration between the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge, City of Fort Worth Forestry and the Water Department.

Note: All meetings are still free to the public and entry to the Botanic Garden Center is free for anyone attending our meetings. At 6 p.m., the Botanic Garden grounds are closed to the public and a security guard is stationed at the main entrance off University. Tell the guard you are there to attend the NPSOT meeting.

Meet and greet @ 6 p.m.
