Family Learning Space @ North Channel

toysThanks to the Harris County Friends of the Library for their generous donation to the North Channel Library. Along with funds from the Friends of the North Channel Library, we were able to replenish items for the Family Learning Space in the Children's Area of the Library. 
In this area you will find new building blocks that will encourage children to use their imaginations, creativity, and problem solving skills. Also purchased was a new item, a kitchen, that will help children benefit from pretend play to boost their social and emotional development.

Program: Native Prairie Plants for Your Garden

Photo by Chuck Duplant - Native Prairie Plants at Lawler Deer Park Prairie PreserveJoin us on Saturday, February 10 at 10:30 am, when Lan Shen, a board member of the Houston Chapter, Native Prairies Association of Texas (HNPAT), will tell us about the nearby Lawther - Deer Park Prairie Preserve, and how you can use the native plants of the coastal prairie in your own yard.

Ms. Shen describes the program:
The coastal tallgrass prairie was the predominant habitat of Harris and surrounding counties for thousands of years in pre-European settlement times. Prairie plants were what the early settlers saw when they settled here. Today, the tallgrass prairie is almost extinct in Harris County. A platinum quality remnant of this prairie can be found here in the center of Deer Park at the 52 acre Lawther - Deer Park Prairie Preserve.

Many gardeners today only know plants that had been imported from other countries and no longer know our beautiful native plants that used to grow here without added fertilizers, without irrigation, without pesticides. I would like to introduce you to these native prairie plants, talk about their growing conditions and sources for these plants.

Free! No registration required.
