Create Pollinator Habitat

Pollinators in peril... Sometimes we tend to forget about the smaller things in life that really do make the world go 'round. Just as wildlife has suffered from increased fragmentation of land through urbanization, so have bees, beetles, and butterflies. Why the decline in pollinators? Could it be the increased use of pesticides... or light pollution to the night sky? Whatever the reasons, many organizations are offering helpful information and incentives for people to plant pollinator habitats. Pollinators like plants that produce pollen, nectar, shelter and safety from predators. Pollinators need nectar throughout most of the year, not just in spring. Planting diverse native wildflowers will benefit monarch butterflies, honey bees and native bees. Here's our top recommendations

Riparian Recovery Resources

Texas is home to more than 3,700-streams & 15 major Rivers. Totaling 191,000-miles, riparian areas are essential in storing and protecting water quality, preventing erosion, and providing nutrients and habitat for fish, fireflies and wildlife. Our actions (or lack of) can sustain healthy, vibrant natural riparian areas for all to enjoy now and in the future.

Often, the best thing you can do for stream banks is leave them alone. Heavy equipment compacts soil, making recovery difficult. Cleared, manicured turf lawns are extremely low stabilizer plant communities offering little soil protection or water filtration. After flooding, leave downed trees and drift in place where practical. Native, deep-rooted, diverse plant communities work together with big dead wood, limbs and debris to help dissipate floodwater energy, filter and trap sediment, and stabilize soil and plant recovery. Regeneration can occur naturally in riparian areas especially where there are existing healthy uplands in place.

Quality Tools Made in USA

Start with heavy duty tools made in the USA - 100% organic control of alien species such as KR Bluestem (from Asia), Bastard Cabbage or Musk Thistle (from Europe, Asia). Aliens compete fiercely for available sunlight and water. Native American Seed encourages the removal and control on all non-native species for the benefit of our vanishing eco-systems. A good resource to learn more about alien species is Texas Invasives Database.

Longtime favorite tools:
Tomahawk - general all purpose hoe
Arrow - tool for early detection
Trail Builder - hoe and pick in one
Fire Rake - robust hoe and rake
