"On Oct. 28, members of the Texas Master Naturalists and Friends of the History Center established over 100 plants donated by TMN for the Wildscape at The History Center. The Margaret Sue Rust Foundation provided additional funding.
The Wildscape includes features, such as a Butterfly Enclosure, Layered Border Garden, Understory Garden, and Hummingbird Mott, using all native Texas plants. Each plant is labeled so that visitors can replicate similar landscapes in their landscapes. Drip fountains, bird feeders, hummingbird stations, brush piles, compost bins, tree skags, and bird houses are scattered throughout the property. Pat Garland, the designer and certified TMN, worked closely with Pam Stranahan and Carla K. Rinche to develop plans for the Wildscape. Although not all features are currently present, it is open to the public." - Vickie Merchant
