Range Plants of North Texas
By: Ricky J. Linex
The District is giving away a wonderful book titled “Range Plants of North Central Texas – A Land User’s Guide to Their Identification, Value and Management” written by Ricky J. Linex, as a thank you to those who donate $20 or more to the Parker County SWCD in support of the District’s conservation efforts.
Easy to use and beautifully written, the guide is full of colorful pictures of plants and their seeds. This is a great resource for anyone who would like to identify plants growing on their property.
I give my pledge to save and faithfully to defend from waste the natural resources of my county-its soil and minerals, its forests, water, and wildlife.
All year round, we offer rain barrels for water harvesting, made from food grade recycled containers. Once ordered they are delivered to your door!
Rain barrels with various attachments are available all year long, but now is the time to start storing water for your gardening needs next summer.
And the good news just keeps coming – RAIN WATER HARVESTING EQUIPMENT AND RAIN BARRELS ARE TAX EXEMPT!
Contact us for more information!
Our board meetings are on the First Thursday of every month.
Each meeting starts at 9 am.
You are welcome to attend any of these meetings.
