The Native Landscape Certification Program encourages Texans to return to nature.
The Native Landscape Certification Program in Texas is a series of classes that teach best practices for native plant landscape and habitat preservation and introduction. The format is a combination of classroom instruction with PowerPoint and outside fieldwork. Each class is taught adjacent to a natural area so we can provide instruction in native plant identification, including trees, shrubs, forbs and grasses, their use in the landscape, as well as common exotics found in the landscape. At each level students are introduced to 50 plants.
Targeted audiences are homeowners, native plant enthusiasts, landscape architects, architects, landscape designers and nurserymen, Master Naturalists, teachers, citizens, Master Gardeners, engineers, and more.
