First Natives Nursery Open House a Success

On Saturday, September 8, 2018, Houston Audubon hosted its first ever Natives Nursery Open House. We welcomed visitors to the Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary cabin for short presentations about the nursery and planting with natives. Visitors were also welcomed to explore the nursery and ask any native plant questions they may have from staff and nursery volunteers. Our native plant experts were able to help visitors not only learn about planting with natives, but pick out native plants of their own. Over 60 individuals and families took plants home with them while others enjoyed learning about the plants in preparation for their future planting efforts. 

The next open house date will take place sometime this spring, so be sure to follow Houston Audubon on Facebook or check the our website for the date. 

A special thanks goes out to our wonderful, yellow-clad volunteers: Lily Sweet, Lisa Purnell, Tom Greer, Beth Kennedy, Les Pearce, Millie Morgan, Julie d’Ablaing, Karen Hoffman, Mary Spolyar, Patti Thompson and Carol Oeller. 

The Natives Nursery is open every Friday morning from 8-11 am for public sales. For more information on the nursery, planting with natives, or what plants we have in stock, visit the Bird-friendly Communities website at
