In the Garden


As part of the Arboretum’s mission to conserve native habitat and promote the use of native species, we offer a series of courses for gardeners, plant enthusiasts, and those looking to provide native habitat for wildlife at their homes. Courses vary throughout the year but include compost barrel workshops, constructing feeders for butterflies and hummingbirds, and plant identification classes.

Upcoming programs in this category include:

September 14 In the Garden Selecting Colorful Native Plants for Houston
November 30 In the Garden Landscaping with Texas Native Trees, Shrubs & Vines
