Bullies on the Prairie: The scourge of invasive plants in Texas 

Scott Clark, from the University of Houston Crawford Lab, will lead a discussion of the origin and spread of invasive plants in the state, their impact on native communities and prospects for native restoration. He will have some plant samples on hand for you to investigate.

Scott Clark is a graduate researcher in the Crawford Plant Community Ecology Lab at the University of Houston. His research focuses on the response of native plant, herbivore and soil microbial communities to invasive plants. Prior to his work in ecology, he was a journalist and lawyer.

Hermann Park Conservancy’s Garden & Nature Series offers classes in the Park’s McGovern Centennial Gardens that focus on a variety of subjects all related to garden and nature and the benefits associated with being outdoors. Learn about topics that range from canning your own vegetables and preserving your garden in the winter to sketching a bowl of fruit and photographing the creepers and crawlers in your garden beds. Designed to be fun, hands-on, and informative, these classes are great for novices and experts alike.
