Join the Prairie Rose Chapter of the NPSOT on Tuesday, Jan. 7, at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will be held at the Somervell County Citizens Center, 209 S.W. Barnard St. in Glen Rose for the first in an exciting lineup of programs.

The chapter will start the year with learning how to identify plants by more than just pictures. It will begin with some basic Plant 101 – a brief lesson in plant I.D. terms and jargon that are common in plant descriptions. Handouts and resources will be available as well.

The chapter has some interesting programs lined up for 2014 – native grass management, edible native plants, native herbs and their uses, natives for honeybees, ‘lazy man’ gardening with Paul Dowlearn and many more ideas.

The group will have a roundtable discussion of our future programs, activities and field trips and get plans firmed up – by you! The chapter wants your involvement and feedback. Plant clinics, plant swaps, seed exchanges, field trips?

Bring your questions for a plant forum or your favorite tips to share. What is working for you, or not working, as may sometimes happen?

This will be a new exciting meeting format, one to involve more sharing and participation.

Everyone is welcome. Bring your friends and neighbors!
