The Garden Club of Houston
The Garden Club of Houston has played a key role in restoring, improving and protecting the environment through education, financial support and hands-on activities since 1924. The Club’s dedicated members spend countless hours cultivating native plants, removing invasive plant species, planting native trees and creating traveling conservation exhibits. Generous GCH grants over the years have funded many conservation efforts, including scholarships, schoolyard habitat gardens, community vegetable gardens and educational brochures. We greatly appreciate The Garden Club of Houston and all that its members have done over the past 94 years for birds, bugs, plants and people.
Don Verser is a prairie conservationist who has devoted countless hours working on habitat restoration in High Island since 2006. Don’s Drip at Smith Oaks Bird Sanctuary was named for him in appreciation of his hard work and pioneer spirit. Don discovered Deer Park Prairie and was instrumental in saving it. In addition, his pocket prairies throughout Houston highlight the interdependence between native plants, birds and insects. We celebrate Don for his accomplishments which serve as a blueprint for others to follow.
